  • I like the empathy approach used in Walk a Mile in Your Interviewers Shoes. I’ve read many articles about UX interview tips and like the unique approach adopted here. Empathy is a trait all UXers should exercise and what better way than through creating a portfolio! Innovation is another aspect I was asked to demonstrate though my portfolio in job interviews. A UXers ability to innovate or the role of innovation in creating user experiences is an area I would like to hear more about. Thanks for compiling those articles!
