What readers are saying

The newsletter provides so many helpful tips and tricks for any newbie, especially those coming from a career in academia, who wants to break into the gaming user experience research industry.

I have been able to read what UX looks like in the gaming industry and translate it into academic terms, ultimately helping me wrap my head around how I might be able to market myself. Plus, the Discord community that the newsletters frequently mentions has been the biggest help for my transition because networking and learning from others is how I build success in myself.

The Games User Research newsletter aids me in my journey as a UR Designer for Ubisoft and PhD candidate in GUR with its diverse and rich content about success stories, industry advice, job listings, links to additional resources and more.

It is always a pleasure to read about other people’s experiences of entering and working in the industry to find out that we are sharing similar goals and challenges. This really makes me feel part of the lovely GUR community.

Whether you are just starting, looking to excel your UR career or wanting to be in the loop about the current research trends in the games industry, then this newsletter is for you.”
