Course overview

There is an actual formula to being a successful interview design candidate.

Crafting a beautiful portfolio and career story may seem like art, but the candidates who stand out know the exact science of what person in the other chair needs to see to get to "yes".

After hundreds of hours as both the interviewer and the candidate, the steps to "strong hire" seem pretty clear–and yet, I've wondered why I see candidates consistently making the same mistakes. I've yet to find a credible external resource that teaches people the "secrets" (which shouldn't really be secrets). And let's be honest, it's getting tougher out there to find jobs.

So, I made this course for you: spend 4-6 hours per week watching videos, chatting with me, and refining your portfolio and approach. It'll be a lot of fun.

Disclaimer: By taking this course, I cannot guarantee you a role and am speaking only for myself and not on behalf of my employer.
