Looking for your next UX job? Here are our top tips…
1. Is your portfolio the best it could be? Make sure you keep your portfolio fresh, always update it with new work and projects. If you think your portfolio is a little shy on something that you know you’re capable of - create your own project in your spare time and share it on there too. This will ensure your full range of skills is shown, making you all the more employable.
2. Widen your skills to give you an extra edge. Learn something new, research different programming languages and systems. It’s not essential, but there is always room to improve and show a desire and hunger to progress.
3. Do you know the answer to questions like ‘Talk me through the process you go through before marking a work package you’ve worked on as 100% complete’ and ‘Do you prefer working in Agile or Waterfall Projects and why?’ These are the type of questions you are likely to be asked in an interview for many of these positions, so make sure you have thought about the answer in preparation.
