Redesigning the design interview – how candidates and businesses can find the right “fit” by rethinking hiring practices from first principles

Waller Salon AB

This session is designed for both job seekers and design managers. The way we do design hiring today is broken. Candidates are required to do too much up-front and still have to complete a long chain of interviews to get an offer. On the other side, hiring managers are overwhelmed by applicants – making it difficult to decide who to move forward into interviews and how to efficiently evaluate skills during the process. This deep-dive will walk through how the design team at Chipper re-evaluated the effectiveness of our hiring process and redesigned it to optimize for: Equity, Respect for candidates’ and team members’ time, and Measurement of the “right skills” for each open position. In the back half of the talk, we’ll also discuss how AI – specifically ChatGPT – is changing the way we’re evaluating portfolios. Join us for a discussion of how “best practices” in hiring must evolve to keep up with expectations from employers and candidates, alike.
