Hello HN!

I’m happy to share my book with you. It’s goal is to help UX/product designers to prepare for job interviews, practice their skills and build designers hiring process at their companies.

I believe there is not enough resources for designers to prepare for job interviews (unlike for engineers/PMs). Often designers don’t know what to expect from the interview. On the other side, many businesses don’t know how to evaluate designers efficiently, especially their first design hire.

I decided to share my experience of hiring designers at WeWork and my first step was sharing publicly the exercises we used during interviews (https://blog.prototypr.io/product-design-exercises-we-use-at...). The feedback I received was great. After talking to both designers and employees I decided to write this book that will help both sides to improve their skills, create better expectations and eventually build better products.

You can read more about the story behind the book here: https://productdesigninterview.com/story.html

Thank you!

Hi there, I followed the link and saw this on your web site:

How much time will it take me to read this book? The book has 158 pages, so it should take you about 3-4 hours. I value your time, so I worked hard to keep the noise-to-signal ratio high to make sure you can finish it over a weekend.

Well, unless I am getting this wrong, I think you mean the opposite. You want to keep the noise-to-signal ratio low !!!

you see, errors like those, discourage me from going any further with your book.

that said. Good luck with it.
