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?

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently a civil design engineer, and trying to switch to real estate as a Program Manager. I have an interview in a week where they tell me I will have to work on ( for about 3-4 hours ) on an operational case study.

The job is located in Paris and the job is in French .

Does anyone here have any case studies in Real estate that they can share ? and if they're from France, that would be even better.

Thank you in advance !

Hi, everyone! I’ve been licensed since Feb 2020. My first job was with the State & I stayed there like 1.5 years before leaving (I gained many skills). I know my biggest mistake was leaving without having something lined up. So BASICALLY I’ve been unemployed since Jan 2021. I was employed by two firms but it didn’t work. I guess I didn’t meet their “expectations”—they expected me to learn everything within a week. ATP, I’m just getting VERY discouraged. Having interviews with no response etc.

Recently interviewed at Adobe, it was great. Even the senior designer I was connected with escalated it a lot. But then suddenly after the last interview, I haven’t heard in a week from them even after multiple follow ups. Recruiter said she will reach out on Monday, but even Tuesday passed now. Should I wait a week or move on for other offers?
