Next, youâll have a discussion with a recruiting manager. Your resume will be discussed in detail, and youâll be evaluated for problem-solving skills, leadership abilities, and culture fit.

âTell me about yourself?â âHow did you get into design?â âWhy do you want to work in UX design?â âCan you share some experiences you think are examples of good design?â
Both Patti and Mackenzie mentioned that overall you can expect pretty generic questions. âMost of the time, I ask pretty straightforward questions in an interview, I keep things pretty standard,â shares Patti. This aligns with Mackenzieâs experience: âTo be honest, the questions that I get are pretty standard, and the questions repeat all the time.â These questions help the interviewer to get to know you and understand your perspectives on design.
One word of caution – Patti highlights that there are certain questions that cannot legally be asked in an interview, due to a country or stateâs laws. These can include questions like whether you have kids or whether you have ever filed for bankruptcy, or your disability status. These laws are intended to protect against discrimination. âItâs definitely useful to know what your rights are, and to know that you donât have to disclose that information in the case you did get asked.â
