What if you didn’t have to think about the possibility of failing? Here’s my close encounter with that question on something as deeply personal as… a UX portfolio.
There’s a truism that most UX portfolios are sh*t and not worth a manager’s time. Assuming it’s true, though, does that mean portfolio advice should be condescending?!?
Questions about success are a staple of UX interviews… and I always end up bungling them. What happens when the ‘quantitative itch’ goes way too far and you’re tempted to downplay your experience because “it’s not quantitative enough” (at least the ‘results’ part of it)?
