About This Class

The DEFINITIVE question and answer guide you’ll need to ace your UX/UI Designer interview.

Being a UX Designer takes a lot of specialized skills. Wireframing, storyboarding, card sorting, prototyping, and so much more. But did you know that during a typical UX/UI design interview, especially with a big company, you might not be asked about any of these?

So what do employers look for? What will they ask?

That’s where this course comes in. Job Interviews in UX/UI Design will supplement your talents as a designer by strengthening your interview skills. With these, you’ll be able to put them to use by applying to and getting offers for well paying jobs.

You will learn how to prepare for and how to interpret the questions you’ll be asked during design interviews, and how to keep recruiters and hiring managers engaged and interested in everything you say. You will also learn the questions you should ask that will elevate the perception managers have of you to that of a high caliber and well-rounded professional.

The course is organized by separating each question into its own individual video so you can find them easily. Each video not only has the question, but also the insight for what each question is really asking, as well as how I'd answer it so you can start to form your own ideas to do the same.

This course is for new and experienced UX/UI Designers who have learned the fundamental skills of designing user experiences, and who are now seeking full time employment.

You've learned to be a problem solver as a designer. Now it’s time to put it to use and get the job you want.
