Hiring managers know that design plays, and will continue to play, a critical role in the success of their companies because: What has been seen cannot be unseen., writes Dr. Leslie Jensen-Inman of the Unicorn Institute.
And what has been seen is companies like Apple, which are investing a lot of resources in design. We can see how much design matters by looking at Appleâ€™s profits in comparison with their competition.
This understanding is leading to an increased demand for designers, and even more specifically itâ€™s leading to an increase in demand for user experience designers. In fact, in the United States alone, there are around 150,000 job listings in the user experience (UX) field.
