  1. Designer Interview

    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Relic Entertainment (Canada) in Aug 2019

    Interview

    This was a 1 hour phone interview with a design director. Things went ok to start but I got the impression that every answer I gave wasn't good enough. It was as if I was being set up to fail from the start.

    Turns out they had already hired for the position I was interviewing for but decided to interview me anyway. Though I had no knowledge of it at that time. Only found out through a friend at the studio.

    Ultimately, I was not equipped for this interview due to lack of communication about the intent of the interview (if there even was one). Arguably, the interview shouldn't of happened in the first place since they had already filled the role.
    Interview

    Question about design leadership and what my design process was and how would I display my process to a team of designers.
