Prototype your interview skills. Think strategically about how you ask and answer the questions within an interview.

This olympic-style event challenges UX hiring managers' skill at asking the question that get's them their blue ribbon candidate. It pairs them against the best San Diego talent, who will do their best to answer (or re-answer) questions aimed at bearing their designer's soul.

Join us for a night of sharpies, chalk dust and tissues. What to expect:
attendees will be split into candidates and hiring managers. Activities will look like a round robin with hiring managers seated while candidates circle the venue capturing tips and feedback.

The known hiring managers include:
