UX Certification - is it a good idea to pursue one?
Hi. Hope this is the right sub for this question, but since I didn't see UX...
I have been working on the web in a number of different postions for many years now. My last role was as a designer for a large IT company in their UX department. I got this position soley from my design/dev chops, since I don't have any "formal" UX experience.
Long story short, I left that position a few months back and I am back out in the marketplace. For a while now I have thought that UX as a discipline is an underserved field. At our large company we had one guy, and he was pretty much always in demand.
Now that I am back to reading Help Wanted ads, I am indeed seeing a lot of demand for UX experience. Short of going back to school for a degree, can someone recommend me a good certification for helping me shore up this skill?
Thanks in advance.
