The best candidates for a product designer will be outstanding communicators, with a lot of creativity, problem solving skills and be willing to take risks.
- Be focused on the customer and want to constantly question the product they are working on to make it the best version of itself.
- It’s important that their skill set reaches from concept to launch.
Interviews naturally breed nerves, so the first part of your interview should aim to make the candidate feel comfortable speaking with you, you’ll get much more information out of them and a better sense of the person they are if they feel like they can trust the environment they are in.
To do this you can ask some fun and interesting questions linked to the role, they should be open ended and encourage conversation. A good place to start is with behavioural questions.
