The current reality is that we often just hope for the best or fail to recognize intuition as part of the VUID skill set and, adding insult to injury, then ax usability testing when schedules get tight.
These personal traits are part of the skill set that both vendor and client companies hire VUIDs to access.
Educating clients about appropriate design practices (30 percent) and inadequate time or budget to perform their work (25 percent) are the biggest challenges VUIDs face.
Job stressors are similar to most workers, although VUIDs had more low-pleasure, high-arousal emotions (angry, anxious, disgusted, furious) than other emotional outcomes to work.
To keep up with what's happening in the field, most VUIDs rated mentoring and peer interaction as the most important (77 percent).
