I’m trying to identify positions within large companies. The consultancies are fairly easy to find, but what about trying to find where you would fit in inside a large corporation - like Procter & Gamble, McDonald’s, Reebok, etc. Specifically I’m looking for the advanced concept groups that would be thinking about products 2-5 years out with activities such as user research, market analysis, concept ideation, prototyping and testing. Also, any way to tell who is doing more advanced, user-centered work and who is just creating ho-hum modifications to existing lines?
Conference rosters? (which conferences?)
