Use design thinking methods to discover and land the right role for you
As UX designers, we always have to be equipped to answer the question “why?”. That’s because design is all about the choices we make. When you’re starting out your career, it can be easy to submit applications everywhere that’s hiring in the hopes that one will pan out. But inevitably, when you get to the interview, you’ll be asked why you’re there, and your answer will make a difference in whether you’ll be asked to come back.
Luckily, design thinking provides a toolkit for making intentional choices based on insights and experimentation.
Here’s how you can apply design thinking to your job hunt to find out what kind of role is right for you and get yourself there.
