Over the past couple weeks I have been holding interviews for web designers. Having seen all sorts of candidates I thought I’d share some of the do’s and don’ts that I’ve seen.


  • Bring a CV
  • Bring some printed examples
  • Explain how you were involved in the project
  • Talk about the techniques you used to create the site
  • Show enthusiasm about web design
  • Explain how you keep up with industry developments


  • Say you have skills that you don’t
  • Show web sites that have under construction sections
  • Show web sites that are not cross browser compatible
  • Say you complete work in unrealistically quick times
