There are quite a few people asking about how to prepare for a UX job interview. One of many things we can do to prepare is consider our responses to a couple of the most commonly posed questions or interview activities. This is both a chance to articulate and rehearse a bit, but also gives you confidence that you know yourself and that you know what you want.
But what are those questions? If you’ve been through a job interview for a UX position, I’d love to hear examples of things you’ve been asked!
Here are a couple of ‘Getting to know you’ questions from our Get Started in UX ebook to kick things off:
- How long have you been in your field?
- What is your interest in user experience design?
- What other things have you done in your life that influence how you do UX?
- How do you stay up to date in UX?
- Where do you look for inspiration?
- What five words would you use to describe yourself?
- What do you find is the most difficult thing about doing UX?
- What do you love most about UX?
- Which websites or products do you most like or dislike, and why?
- Are there any usability experts you follow? Who? What do you think are their strengths and weaknesses?
