4: The Design of Design Interviews
Play • 33 min

Interviewing is a gentle dance. A staged performance where the interviewer and interviewee meet on the battlefield of employability. In other words, it's hard on both sides of the table.

Design challenges are a common component of interviewing for a new gig. But not everyone's a fan. Tom read a tweet last year and just couldn't get the thread out of his mind. In this episode Craig and Tom chat up the spicy twitter exchange, and share their thoughts about design interviews.

Here are some of the topics they get into:

-About Design Challenges/Exercises

-Signs of a Good Interview

-Against Design Challenges

-Interviews are Theater

-Interviews are a Guess

-In Support of Design Challenges

-Context of the personality, the role, & the company
