A friend of mine is looking for someone to help him run website usability studies on a part-time basis (with the option to expand to full-time if all goes well).

He's not looking for "pro" usability consultants - more like people who are willing to learn the (very valuable) art of user experience and usability. This could be a recent college grad or anyone with a few years of experience in a professional environment. 

If you know someone please email me at and I'll put you in touch.
