Ask DN: How did you get your job?

    A friend asked me to have a chat with some startup founders about types of designers, how to hire them, writing job postings, etc. By the end of the phone call I realized I'd just had an interview. They offered me the job a few days later.

    I'm not sure a traditional design portfolio is necessary but things online that show how you think and your expertise is absolutely essential. Mine happened to be a phone call this time around.

    Have you thought about the UX of hiring you? If you're a "designer" then design the entire process from networking to resumes to portfolio to follow-up to thank you notes.
