Hello there,
For graphic design jobs you have to have your portfolio of your work and to show your creativity in the meantime your Attention to detail and creativity of creating new ideas.
For Digital media you have to have a strategy for campaign that you did before including what ever material such as banner design and post.

Hi again Justin,


There are some things in interview preparation that are the same, like rehearsing things you want to say, practicing answering questions with someone else, finding the right clothes to wear, getting enough sleep the night before, making sure you are on time or a little early, having your resume and portfolio ready to show and discuss, etc. Researching the company you are going to interview with, and if possible, the interviewer, will help you to be informed about who they are, and how you might be able to help them. This will give you the confidence you need to sell yourself, and tell them why you are the right choice for them.


Sometimes, you might find that the company and yourself are not a good match for each other, and that's ok too!

Cuong’s Answer

As for interviews, you should bring your portfolio (book, booklet, or in a portfolio folder), resume, and cover letter (optional but plus). In your portfolio, make sure it shows you process of your designs. Employer usually look on how you think and produce your work. Having your own website is huge plus.


For like UI/UX design positions, they want to gauge on your knowledge and strategy how you create your projects.

Rua’s Answer

Hi Justin, I would advise researching the company as well, especially the company's brand identity and approach, this would give you confidence and a better understanding of the company. I would further advise you to go in to your interview with a clear idea of what kind of career you envision for yourself as a designer. This requires research on your chosen field and an understanding of the local businesses and the company you're being interviewed by, that will serve as both inspiration and opportunities for professional and personal development. Having a portfolio showcasing your design work is really important, since it gives the interviewer a deeper look into your design/conceptual thinking skills as well as your technical ones.
