User experience (UX) is a rapidly growing profession that’s attracting high caliber talent from all areas of design, development and marketing. Over the past 16 months, creative recruiting company Onward Search collected data on job listings and noticed a 338 percent increase in postings for user experience professionals. Onward Search commissioned my company, NowSourcing, to take that data and create this graphic.

This infographic breaks down the most useful information about user experience careers to help hiring managers, as well as creative professionals of all levels, successfully navigate this rapidly evolving industry. It’s a visual introduction to the job descriptions, requisite skill sets, salary averages and top hiring spots for UX professionals around the country.

Brian Wallace is the President of NowSourcing, a premier social media firm specializing in infographic design, development and content marketing promotion. The company is based in Louisville, Ky. and works with companies that range from small business to Fortune 500.
