You’re reading an issue of Tuesday UX Trainer, a series that teaches you something new about UX design every week.
> Here are this week’s 3 UX links worth reading…
1. You’ve probably been told that applying to jobs “is a numbers game.” Meaning you got to apply a lot. But is that all there is to it? I recommend a more strategic approach that considers your top vs bottom tiered companies.

2. “High friction interactions are actually preferred in China…why?” A compelling IXDA talk by Christina Xu explains why the the Chinese concept of convenience differs from the U.S – and how this influences the Chinese style of UX.
This is a fascinating presentation on culture + technology in just 40 minutes.

3. If all websites seem to have the same minimalist look these days, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. A study by EyeQuant found that “the cleaner the site the lower the bounce rate, almost across the board.”
This was an analysis done across 300 e-commerce websites. If you’re making an online shop, minimalist is not a bad starting aesthetic!
