Thank you, Chris. I’ve had a very similar article sitting in my “drafts” folder for a few months now (working title: Are You Sure They Really Want a UX Designer?). At first I thought, “Dang, this guy beat me to the punch!” But on reflection, I have decided that with the maturity of UX across industries being what it is, this is a warning you can’t make too loudly or often!

Your focus on interview red flags is very helpful and taught me a few things. Thanks again.
