Can we just get rid of the typical job interview?? I feel like we would all benefit from just having a conversation about the position and the candidates skill set/experience w/o all the behavioral questions crap!

Unless you’re giving them a test or asking a bunch of technical questions, how are you going to determine their skill set? If a test or these questions aren’t included in the typical interview process, I feel like the behavioral questions could be amongst the most insightful so that I can learn about their thought process, quick thinking and recall abilities, ability to explain situations in a logical manner, etc.

It's important to know the technical skills, but if you don't gel with the team you'll be working with them it will probably be a very short stay in the company. That's where the behavioral questions happen to judge your personality and your soft skills, which are critical in our line of work

I have applied research experience and a solid understanding of product development, which I think should land me a UXR role one day, but I’d to hear any thoughts though if you think design knowledge is necessary for UXR?

I have sense that when the work is presented they aren’t directly stating that I did all the work. Pretty irritated. Thoughts?
