Best interviewing experience?

over 3 years ago from Taylor Palmer, I do the UX

    It 100% shows a lack of respect of peoples time and it's extremely biased against people with families, people who teach, volunteer and illustrates general lack of understanding of a good work/life balance. I have a toddler and a disabled mother in law that we care for. I do not have free time after work...

    As for white boarding, step back for a second and critically look at what you learn from a 30 minute whiteboard session? What have your learned that you may not have from asking them really good questions about their portfolio?

    The problem isn't the interview process, the problem is people. Humans are bias and association machines. We can render a kinda sorta ok surface level judgement based on very limited information, but beyond that we become extremely inconsistent. More information often makes our decision making worse... I'd encourage you to read the latest Malcom Gladwell book talking to strangers.

    lastly a big part of UX is try and eliminate our extreme inability to make good personal decisions/judgements. You aggregate data, you look for patterns, more often than not ignore what people say and focus on what they do, and it's good practice that the person who actions on the research shouldn't be the one performing it...
