Question: I’m a designer - going to interview in person this week and just recently got locs done. A friend of mine was telling me how this isn’t a good idea because locs are too ethnic and not corporate looking enough for an interview. But I’m a designer. I do not work for corporate America. Should your hair style really matter that much for an interview?

Is it expected to prepare a deck to present your work/case studies for an interview? Or going through your portfolio is more the norm?

Hi - I’m a jr. designer interviewing for a design role within an agency/consulting setting. The interviewer is a design director who recently worked at Huge.

Hi Guys, I have a few questions - I recently cleared an interview with Deloitte for the role of UX designer consultant. Currently I am working with a startup. I have interviews scheduled with thermo fisher and Boeing. Would Deloitte be worth leaving the other opportunities? How much travelling would I have to do as a consultant? I really don't have anyone to guide me. I would be thankful for any response.

I’ve never interviewed with a Designer before, so I’m looking for guidance on what kind of things could be asked and suggestions on what/how to prepare.

Why do job applications for art directors have way more requirements than copywriters these days? I’m sick of being expected to not only art direct and design, but to be the illustrator, animator, editor, 3D artist, UX/UI designer, etc. all while my copywriter friends snag interviews and gigs left and right with ease bc hiring managers just expect them to do the 1 job they’re supposed to do! I need a job and I’m so so so tired of it!

Question about interview process: I’m transitioning my career to product design and have been applying for a new role. I heard back from a recruiter for a product designer position and asked me to complete a design exercise. The thing is that I’ve not even had a phone interview yet. Is this normal? Also, how long should a design exercise take? The only thing I received is a list of prompts choose from. Thanks!

#advice #mentorship #creativedirectors Hello, business owners and creative community leaders. Since moving to SW Florida end of 2019, professional life has been a f*ckin doozy (for many of us.) For 15 years I’ve been an art director / brand / designer and can say I’ve done well. After many connections and interviews and tests and hoops I’m not getting hired. Feeling defeated, frustrated — bang head here! Any mentors / leaders that can advise a renewed jump to restart? Thank you in advance.

If a candidate that was interviewed is someone your product team loves but the candidate is concerned that they might not be able to be a Product Designer at a scaling company bc they are going back to school for a masters, is it best to fight to get the candidate still or cut them loose to prevent any challenges later?

I'm a budding UX Designer with no exp in the field besides one client project and some school ones. However, for 5+ years I've been a part of User Testing groups and have participated in user research interviews for different companies like Lions Gate, the Canadian Government, Pinterest, etc. I did it to make a little bit of pocket change, but it ended up teaching me about how user researchers collect data and what types of questions they ask. Would it be valuable experience to put on my resume?

I’ve been interviewing for an Interaction Designer role at Google. I’m at the design exercise stage, but still haven’t submitted it for weeks. Recruiter told me a month ago there was a finalist they might be able to close soon & they would update me if it's finalized. Since I haven’t gotten any messages or rejection emails since then, am I still in the running? Does Google auto reject candidates if they spend too much time on the exercise?

I applied to Deloitte for the Workday Solutions Designer role. Went through the entire interview process (3 rounds). Within 3 weeks, I heard from the recruiter saying that they wanted to give me an offer. However, my current company was their client and as per their contract, they wanted me to tell my company before they could hand out the offer letter. I agreed, but asked for more information about the contract (start date, salary, etc). Since then I've been ghosted. Whats going on?

A good friend of mine graduated from Parsons this past summer, has degrees in Journalism and French, and is a very talented photographer and designer. And I’m certain she’d make a fabulous junior AD or content strategist. Unfortunately she, like many in this pandemic, is having no luck finding a job despite applying for everything under the sun. It’s a tragic waste of potential and I want to help. Any advice for her or shops/hiring managers/non-traditional job hunt tips to steer her towards? 🤞🏼
