A UX portfolio gets you in the door ...
But your interview skills are what will set you apart from the rest.
If you want to stand out from other candidates, you have to be prepared for the job interview including questions that may be asked, presenting your portfolio, and executing design exercises.
Yes, it's nerve wracking and you might be nervous about:
- Knowing what types of questions you'll be asked
- Freezing up when they ask you to do a live design exercise
- Talking about the projects in your portfolio
- Dealing with phone interviews and in person sessions
