A guide to interviewing for UX research jobs
Over the past year, I’ve written a lot about preparing for interviews for UXR positions. Here’s one spot where you can find all that content:
- UX research interviews: what to expect (part 1)
- UX research interviews: what to expect (part 2)
- What to expect from technical UX research interview questions
- For the love of God PRACTICE your presentations!
- How to Put Together a UX Research Portfolio Presentation
- Slide Design Basics … for UX Researchers
- Top 5 UX interview mistakes
And if you’re new to UX research, here are some books I’d recommend you read to help you prepare for your interviews:
- Observing the User Experience — a practical guide to a variety of research methods and when to use them throughout the product development lifecycle.
- About Face — a good overview of the user-centered design process (a bit more focused on interaction design than research).
- Handbook of Usability Testing — a very thorough guide that focuses on the rigors of various types of usability research. It’s the book that I always refer back to when I’m conducting a more complex evaluation.
I’ll keep updating this post as I write more about interviews and as I learn of more resources.
