As long as you're clear when you explain it, you don't really need to show it. Be very explicit on your main buckets, and then walk through each one individually.

Draw an issue tree and hold it up to the camera if possible Whether you do that or not though, just explain it very clearly so your interviewer can draw it as you explain for themselves

I said something along the lines of “on my paper I’ve written out three main buckets to evaluate with areas to explore under each” then went through tso they knew what I did.

White printer paper with thick black sharpie. Hold up to camera. Rehearse prior with a friend on the same videoconference setup. Some virtual systems designs interviews required this, having a visual helps convey the structure.

I interviewed for a job in a diff location and during interviews they asked me multiple times how I felt abt relocating.

I’m Happy to fly in on a monthly basis but I don’t want to move there.

Currently interviewing for a designer role at Tesla - wanted some advice. The hiring manager has seemed uninterested and always dropped off interviews early and without answering any of my questions. He also mentioned that he's lost 4 designers from the team recently (red flag!). I think it'd be a cool role, but it sounds like I'd be the only designer and there's not a ton of support, BUT if I do well - lots of room for growth and promotion. Plus internal transfers after a year also an option?

Told my pregnant sister yesterday for the first time that I don’t want kids (fear of having a special needs child + thinking of the world I would be bringing them into) and her first response was “not everyone wants to nurture and take care of others” and went on about how she has always been someone who takes care of others. It’s so upsetting that this is the kind of judgement women place on others when they say they don’t want children. Child free women how do you manage?
