Forging a career path in any field can be challenging, and different positions require different approaches. That’s why the School of Information Sciences is launching its inaugural “Career Exploration Week,” a virtual program that gives current students a chance to speak with an SIS alumni currently working in the information field, which takes place September 17-21, 2018.
Facebook User Experience Researcher Reggie Murphy was presented with the University of Tennessee Accomplished Alumni Award on Friday, January 26, 2018 in recognition of his notable career successes and distinction in his field. Murphy, who began his time at Facebook as a user experience research manager in 2016, obtained his PhD in Communications from the UT College of Communication and Information (CCI) in 1998 and his Master’s in 1994.
Prior to joining Facebook, Murphy spent: four years with Electronic Ink as a principal consultant; twelve years with Gannett as general manager of corporate research, general manager of audience research, director of research services and manager of marketing research; and two years at Frank Magid Associates as a research analyst.
