Storytelling and the Art of Getting the Design Job

event dates Oct 11, 2017, 00:00
Online, Faridabad

As designers, we focus on crafting the perfect web site or app. We agonize over our customer personas, the right flows, and making sure every pixel is perfect. When selling ourselves for our next job or project, we can use these same Experience Design skills to craft a detailed narrative that speaks to our target audience, the interviewers. Design is a process of problem solving; during the hiring process, we are trying to solve a two-sided problem, matching the best talent with the right project. A story-centered approach, in conjunction with other user-centered design techniques (including research and testing), can help to create superior outcomes. This talk will discuss the various steps in the interview process and how to nail them by focusing on the power of storytelling. Presenter: Sharon Carmichael Sharon Carmichael currently leads the Interaction Design community for Intuit’s award-winning TurboTax experience. In her twenty years working in the field of Experience Design at both large and small companies, she has hired numerous designers and reviewed hundreds of portfolios. Her pet peeves are typos, illegible fonts, and people who assume they can use her laptop to show their portfolio during an interview.
