Last year LinkedIn described “Usability Expert” as a high demand job title. LinkedIn and the Bureau of Labor Statistics forecast continued growth in UX jobs through 2030. Both describe salaries as commensurate with demand, ranging between $77,000 and $103,000. The purpose of this webinar is to introduce two Usability Experience training courses now available to HFES members at a discount.
