I am a graduate student at DePaul University. I am currently doing a
research to understand usability practices in the corporate world(excluding
consulting companies).

Also to understand your usability interests, and what are the key skills a
new usability professional would need.

My research is due Nov 11th,  would anyone be interested to talk to me for
my research. Please let me know at [log in to unmask]
