UX/UI country. If careers were vacations, you’d probably go here.

In today’s transformational age aflush with career options, the task of finding the perfect career is akin to rumbling through a haystack in search of that elusive needle. Evidently, new disciplines are emerging virtually every day and piling on to the soaring stack of new job roles. With unprecedented choice, one is staring at a confusing plethora of equally good options.

Thankfully, for those in the creative arena, especially, the ones interesting in design-related careers, the choice is as easy as pie; there’s one distinctive option truly worthy of pursuing – UX & UI Design. It’s a new-age career pathway perfect for the young, ambitious, and aspiring designer.

UX and UI Design jobs offer the perfect blend of high salary, growth potential, and job security, making them attractive career choices. In fact, UX/UI Design is trending as one of the top 10 careers in the world. Browse through any design job board today and it’s likely that you’ll find at least a couple of openings for UX/UI Design. And it’s not hard to find the reason for this high demand.

For most of us, hardly a day goes by without visiting a website, using some digital product or an app on our smartphones. From paying a bill online to purchasing a product at an e-commerce store, hiring a cab or seeking some information/service through a website, everything is tied to UX/UI Design; two inter-dependent disciplines that help improve the quality of interaction between the user and the digital product, effectively improving expected outcomes (it could be anything from ‘visitor count’ to ‘sales conversions’, ‘registrations/subscriptions’, etc…)

More and more businesses are realizing that designing apps/websites with attractive+clutter-free user interfaces and functional+intuitive user experience are key to improving customer satisfaction, branding/sales, and relevant organization goals.

Because of this growing importance of UX/UI to business, the job market is witnessing heightened demand for UX/UI Design professionals. Employers are struggling to find UX/UI professionals as there is an acute shortage of experienced talent. While the best web designing courses are available, one cannot say the same of UX/UI as they are emerging disciplines.

Many recruiters in the design space claim that UX/UI Design is one of the most difficult roles for companies to fill and point to the fact that many UX/UI Design roles in the job market remain unfilled. And as demand outstrips supply, UX salaries are increasing year on year. Catering to this growing demand for UX/UI designers, many multimedia institutes are offering ux design courses in Hyderabad. They are imparting a variety of short-term and long-term courses in UX/UI Design, both through the conventional, brick-and-mortar classroom mode and the online, virtual classes platform.

However, in the current situation, online programs are a great way to utilize time, upskill, and prepare for a career in this emerging field. Creative Multimedia’s transformative UX Design program is designed to help you advance your career.

Available in Basic and Advanced versions, the UX Design online programs are imparted by an experienced industry professional through convenient weekend sessions (Two per week) on Saturday and Sunday. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be awarded a Certificate and can avail placement assistance.

So take the program and get started on a great career journey to UX country. Rest assured, you’ll
stay back and enjoy a lifetime of personal and professional growth. Bon voyage!

Striking a chord with students, Mr. Anil Pant, MD & CEO of APTECH highlighted the prolific job opportunities in multimedia saying: “This is one sector which will never experience a recession due to the deep penetration of internet, explosive growth in mobile phones and advent of new content platforms.”

“Today, people across age groups, gender, social strata and region are consuming content. There is an audience for every genre of content and with spiralling demand, multimedia talent like you who are create that content will never be out of a job and will always enjoy job security.

Highlighting the surfeit of job opportunities in multimedia, Mr. Anil stated: “You guys (digital media students) attract multiple job opportunities. Many are in a comfortable position to tear up at least 2 job offers. Thankfully, you are not affected by the employment crisis facing fresh graduates in mainstream sectors like Engineering. Less than 15% of engineers today are getting jobs and the average starting salary of software engineers is very lower. Also, unlike software and related sectors where new skills are required to stay job-relevant due to rapid technology changes, the basic skills required in multimedia are the same, ensuring that talent will never go obsolete in this industry.”

While parents, for long, have preferred Engineering and other mainstream careers pathways to Multimedia which is not considered aspirational, rewarding and stable enough, Mr. Anil exclaimed: “Today, with the kind of prolific opportunities and demand for multimedia talent, I wish more parents would allow children to take up multimedia careers. This is the time. Collectively, across digital media and entertainment verticals, the industry needs more than 1,00,000 trained people today but is unable to meet demand. Too many jobs are being created but we just don’t have enough talent.”

Mr. Anil treated students to a screening of “Fattu Rap” – the latest promo of Arena Animation. Exhorting students to be proud of embracing a multimedia career, he said that India is has now emerged as a major destination for the biggest names in global media and entertainment. Commending the Founder and CEO of Creative Multimedia Group, Mr. Raja Sekhar Buggaveeti, he said: “Rajasekhar is the most passionate individual I’ve come across in the Multimedia training sector in India. Staying committed to Enhancing EmploymentTM for over two decades, producing 26,000 creative art professionals and facilitating jobs for them is no small achievement and I wish the government of Telengana recognizes his efforts.”

Mr. Neeraj Raj, Founder of Immertive Pvt. Ltd., an enterprise specializing in creating immersive experiences in healthcare using Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) technologies. Stating that Animation is no more just about entertainment, he said that specializations such as Medical Animation are gaining ground as distinct verticals and helping expand the animation sector.

Elaborated on the growing role of Animation in healthcare, he said: “Medical Animation is at the forefront of modern healthcare. Though intended for different audiences, it is most commonly used as an instructional/educational tool for medical professionals and patients. Offering an immersive experience, it shows how medicines work inside the body, how surgical procedures are done, how the brain reacts to different stimuli and other physiological changes.”

Dilsukhnagar Arena

Gandhi Jayanthi-respecting our father of Nation

This is a 3D Model (student work) which depicts Mahatma Gandhi marching on a path of thorns followed by his three monkeys. The striking element of the model is that of the path of thorns turning into roses even as the Mahatma walks upon them. This is symbolic of the Mahatma’s labor and all the hardships he bore along the way, as he lead India towards its independence. The render passes for the model were done in Maya, and the compositing in Photoshop.
