Designers

What are some smart things to talk about during interview with UX director? Or what type of ux questions should I expect? I'm visual designer interviewing for product design..

Also, soft skills are really important. I'd rather train someone into the role that is eager, wanting to learn and I can put in front of a client vs someone who may have great design chops but not be a team player.

Ask exactly about the type of work and skills needed for the role, ask about the most common type of projects/deliverables you'd be working on, ask about the typical project timelines and most importantly about what the team's biggest challenges are. This will let you know if you have the skill set needed for the role, or if it's something you can grow into and what the drama with the department is (bc there's always some drama). Remember that the catalyst for the interview is that the company needs to hire someone to do work (Maybe with an urgent need) and they want someone who is capable, has the required skill set and is pleasant enough that they'll be a good team player and that they won't quit after a month and be a poor investment.

Do you have experience in interface design or designing for user needs? Have you facilitated any user research? What do you like best about experience design? Where on the ux spectrum do you fall... research and uncovering user needs or interaction and interface design? What do you want to learn? How do you want to grow?

I live in LA. I’m currently interviewing at McKinsey for a role offered in multiple cities outside of LA. It’s totally worth it to pack my stuff and make the move if I land this... but is there any chance that they would provide an option to stay in LA even if they don’t have an office here?

Recruiter gives salary range of 130-145k in initial convo. I say under 155k would be hard, he says “$10k higher, that’s doable.” Healthcare at company sucks - so Now want to ask for 160k. Is that ok?

How transparent is your firm about your H1B application? Do you get your application receipt number? I’ve worked really hard to get this job and made a lot of life changing decisions and worried about losing all this just because my application isn’t picked in lottery🥺🙁.
