I went to an interview this month with my resume printed out in my bag but the head recruiter didn’t want to see it and asked if I brought my laptop to show my work / portfolio. So bring your laptop in case the office’s computer screens are hard to link up to

It wouldn’t hurt you to have it but it could hurt you to not have it.

Portfolio is mandatory though and always assume their WiFi isn’t going to work so figure out a way to make sure it still works offline.

No.

Nice to have, hardly essential

Essential? No. A nice gesture? Sure. As an (often underprepared) interviewer, it’s nice to get a quick reminder of your background.

Logistically, I always hand the CD my resume to look at while I pull out my portfolio. Saves them from watching you struggle with the wifi. Plus, sometimes it introduces more interesting small talk or mutual acquantainces.

If you don’t want the job

As a creative, probably not. I haven't had a resume for years.

Always a good idea to bring some hard copies.

Here’s a pivot question - What should creatives bring to an interview?

Hello Everyone,

I interviewed at a product based company and went through all the rounds except the final HR round. The general consensus I got from the panel in the final round was that I have done well and HR will contact me. But a day later I get an email saying that my application has been put on hold after deliberation from the BU and they will reach out soon.

This is the first time I'm interviewing to change organizations so I am pretty confused if this means their way of rejection?

I am product designer with a fair amount of experience (6yrs).

Recently was interviewed for a Sr. role in Booking but unfortunately, the team finds me better suited as a core individual contributor.

I am also in the advanced stages of some lead designer positions in other companies.

However I am really interested in joining the team at Booking, especially because of the design culture.

What should be my reasons to accept or not accept the offer from booking?
