It’s okay to say “I don’t know” when you don’t actually know. Just be ready to validate with users and data.

🐠 wld appreciate advice! Three options: 1) buy a flat and scrape together the despot 2) rent a one bedroom flat for c. £1200 per month and use the deposit monies to invest in stocks etc or 3) continue to live in family friends flat that is quite dilapidated and bad for health (lots of dust, paint chippings, needs total refurb).

My daughter just attended a new teacher workshop at a ROE. A Superintendent presented (not hers) and told this room full of new teachers, “Real teachers get to school at 7:00 am and go home at 8:00 pm.” Really?? As a veteran teacher of 26 years, I was appalled! Makes sense why new teachers are leaving the classroom in their first five years and why we have a teacher shortage in Illinois with those type of expectations.

I just got an offer for a job at a commercial real estate company. I’m looking forward to my first real job outside of college but my main concern would be the hours. I’ve heard it can be up to 50 or even 100 hours in some regards.
I’m still willing to do the work, but how much of an adjustment will be necessary if the hours are likely to be long?

Hey all,
So I need an advice. I’ve been through interview process with this company for like 3 months already.
Last round of interviews was 4 video chats back-to-back with 4 different people.
Hiring manager sent me today a feedback saying that they are still in the process of collecting feedback, but one of the things that popped up was “the lengthy of answers and sometimes not answering the asked questions.” He asks for my take on this and if nervousness played a part in this.

How long did it take you to become effortless at Figma? I am trying to tackle the advanced sections in 15 days. I am really great graphic ui design with Figma. I know how to make auto-layouts such as structuring, responsive text boxes and buttons and constraints on grids and columns. I also understand basic variants and I can follow Figma enough to work to tutorials. My process of using the meat (auto layout and variants) of Figma isn’t effortless as I’d like. Is this doable? 15-30 days?

I'm struggling to get my team in Figma organized. Are there particular strategies your teams use to do this? We use Jira for project management, SDLC, etc. I think the biggest gap is managing snapshots of designs that are geared to specific cards in Jira. I also find it very hard to find particular designs within the project itself. Any best practices would be greatly appreciated. In the past I haven't had to be as hands-on in the design team, so plenty for me to learn.

UX/Product designers at large companies, what has your experience been like? I work for a mid-sized company but it’s a lot bigger than my previous companies. I feel like everything I work on has to go through so many different people and by the time it’s finalized I feel like the design doesn’t even feel like mine anymore. People also seem to overthink every little design decision which causes things to move so slowly. Do you guys have the same experience at a large company?
