This is what I found reading a newsletter from Userfocus.
Get Started in UX
The book styles itself as 'The complete guide to launching a career in user experience design' and it certainly lives up to its promise. Structured as a series of 6 steps, the book takes you through getting the right education, getting the right software tools, getting appropriate experience, getting connected in the industry, getting a mentor and finally getting hired. It comes with some worksheets so you can measure your own experience and progress. It's a snip at $18, and definitely a career investment worth making. http://uxmastery.com/get-started-in-ux/?go=d3d9446802a44259755d38e6d163e820
