So much for being friendly
I am a product designer, this is how we do research, this is only a small portion of what I'm up to (not a third of my grade). Please don't pretend you know what I do, I wouldn't tell someone else how to do their job. Research is first of many steps in developing a product. I'll be doing in person interviews of ski patrol members, lift operators, and outfitters this weekend and am trying to gather a large amount of information with only two weeks to do so.
For those of you who say, "the last thing we need is more backpacks." I agree. I'm not blind, I've done extensive market research,and cataloging of the different winter sports packs available. If my intent is not clear to you, that's alright, when asking these sorts of questions my intent shouldn't be clear. I don't want to effect the outcome of the survey by giving away what the exact project is. Yes, it has to do with winter sports gear, that's all I am willing to reveal at the moment.
Why am I working on this sort of project? I will be interviewing for jobs come December and would love to have a job that I am passionate about, that I won't come home from every day wonder why the hell I go there every morning. So I have chosen a topic with specific job targets in mind.
I forgot how unfriendly the internet can be, but thank you so much to all who have taken the survey so far. Your help is much appreciated.
