UX design job interviews evaluate a candidate’s creative aptitude and talent for design thinking. As a result, they often contain elements (whiteboarding exercises, portfolio reviews, and so on) that distinguish them from more traditional job interviews. In this course, learn what to expect in your next UX design job interview and how to approach each stage with confidence. Throughout the course, instructor Diane Cronenwett shares her insights as both a designer and hiring design manager, walking you through each step of the interview process. Diane explains how to prepare for each facet of your interview, from the prescreen process to the post-interview check-in with your recruiter.
