Work place for UX designer

In my opinion, I think that this job may be suitable for me. Although my intended major is Electronic and Computer Engineering(ECE) which is not related to Senior User Experience Designer so much, the tasks for this job attracted me. The designer not only needs know web application design, PC application design, and usability which may conclude in ECE, but also have to be the leader of a team with many kinds of people which need ability to manage the team and enhance the relationship between the team members. This job connects customer satisfaction with ideas of product engineers. Although Senior User Experience Designers always need at least one a bachelor’s degree in design, human-computer interaction, cognitive science, or a related field, the salary at first 5 years’ career is around $93K which is pretty high and will increase when the time of career gets longer. According to the data I searched, the satisfaction of this job is extremely high which I concern more than salary. However, the biggest problem is the requirement for this career is strictly. If I really want to choose Senior User Experience Designer as my career, I have to work harder.





Architectural Designer

Designing work for Architectural Designer

Apparently, this job cannot attract me very much, because I am not interested in architecture. Also my major ECE is quite different from Architectural designer. The tasks for this job are communicating with the clients to see their budget and preference and then doing research at the field. After acknowledge what clients needed, Architectural designer has to work with engineers which makes me feel interested because I like to work with many people and do one task corporately, also this is the reason why some architectural designers feel satisfy when they doing this job. However, I am not good at making a draft for the architect. Even until now I still cannot paint and draw very well. To be a good architectural designer, he or she has to be loyal to their design which requires designer to check the projects often. The salary for this job is around $53K and the requirement for architectural designer is a college degree in architecture and the experience about doing in the field. The satisfaction for this career is at normal. Some architectural designers think that studios are comfortable and the team members are really nice. However, the work hour for designing is very long and many designers may feel stressful because there are often more than one tasks to do at the same time. I am the person who think the satisfaction is much more important than salary. As a result, I would not prefer to choose Architectural designer as my career.
