Good to Use: Doing Anthropology at Google


HSS 225 Anthropology Department

Anthropology in Action Speaker Series

While trying to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful, Google grounds itself with 10 basic truths - the first of which is focus on the user. Once you decode it, this is a call for anthropologist job candidates. Dr. Elizabeth Baylor will discuss user experience (UX) as a form of anthropological inquiry through the lens of her own career path and recent projects for Google Health and the internationally-focused, Next Billion User (NBU) group. Join for a guided discussion of the UX process, an insider look at Google's UX roles and work culture, and some concrete tips for applying to Google yourself.
