Top UX Designer Interview Questions & How To Answer

Here are three top UX designer interview questions and tips on how to answer them:

Question No. 1: A web developer disagrees with your recommendation for improving a website's user experience. How do you handle this disagreement?

How to answer: Teamwork, communication and conflict resolution are essential skills for this job, so describe a process that reflects them to address the conflict. Steps can include using communication skills to understand a web developer's perspective, building solidarity using conflict-resolution and teamwork skills, and getting a supervisor's support. Also, speak about reframing the proposed change to address the developer's concerns and working with the developer to arrive at a mutually acceptable solution.

Question No. 2: Which technology forms do you frequently use for UX projects?

How to answer: A UX designer must know how to use relevant computer programs and programming languages. Demonstrate to the hiring manager that you have the necessary technical expertise for a UX designer job. Dreamweaver and Illustrator from the Adobe Creative Cloud, JavaScript and HTML are essential technology applications for this position.

Question No. 3: What is your strategy for communicating UX changes to developers and designers?

How to answer: Demonstrate to the hiring manager that you are a strategist and team player by describing a process for communicating user experience changes that engages your colleagues instead of alienating them. Steps you can discuss can involve obtaining colleague and supervisor feedback on the proposed changes; developing usage scenarios based on feedback and market research; and creating a persuasive argument to support each change. Emphasise how you communicate effectively using verbal and nonverbal communication, active listening and empathy.
