When do you think UX jobs are going to be available again? I was affected by tech lay offs and I’ve been applying for 2 weeks and only 3 interviews with no offers

I don’t have an answer, but here’s my experience. I was laid off from a UX lead job 5 months ago—had some interviews, but no full time offers. Ended up taking a 3-mo contract job, which I’m doing now. Lately I have not been hearing back on applications. I think it’s rough with so many layoffs and so many remote positions, you’re really competing with a huge group of folks. Try to leverage your connections is always the best bet, I would say.

its a crapshoot, probably 2025 may look better depending on too many exogenous factors the biggest one being the fed lowering interest rates. At least you're getting interviews, 2023 was much worse.

Yup, more layoffs and stock buybacks are coming if Jan & Feb were indicators for the rest of the year plus it's an election year. Things aren't as predictable. Take your time is a competitive market with a lot of talent.

Yeah you’re not the only one….its the patience game for those of us out… I’ve had 1 pre-interview stating over qualified, multiple rejections, 1 just under qualified, and 2 pending if the positions open back up..

I work for a small startup and just got a $3k “market rate adjustment” raise on my $112k salary. I was informed that this was due to the market rate for product design doing worse this year than last year, in addition to the company basing salaries on the average pay for senior product designers in “the whole US outside of major cities”. Even so, this seems low to me and I just want to get a sanity check. Should I negotiate?
