The Monday Morning WHIP // 241

whip-241
I was at a conference this week, where I met the Head of UX at a large technology company.

We got to talking as there was a lot of crossover in the work that she did and the job I do.

What surprised me most about her was her hiring policy. She said that every member of her team had a personal project on the go.

Not one or two of them. All six of them.

Her team consisted of people with a broad range of creative interests.

I love this because I am a firm believer in the multi disciplinary philosophy of the Bauhaus.

And it wouldn’t surprise me if this approach to the hiring of creative people became more commonplace.

So maybe it’s time you started thinking about showcasing some of your personal creative pursuits in your job interviews and folio showings.

It could end up being the thing that separates you from the crowd.
