    Question What are several common interview questions in this field?

    I'm currently working part-time at a community college and I just applied to a web design position at one of the campuses.

    If I'm selected for an interview I believe that they might give me a skills test. But I am also worried about the interview questions.

    What are several common interview questions that clients/companies will ask to determine your skill level in web design? Thanks

    I'm a developer, and I'm a bit of an odd case, but after 12 years of doing client meetings and interviews, one thing is common...they're all different. Of course, a lot of that is on me because I approach every prospective client differently, but there is no real commonality.

    Some of the "more common" things I've been asked are:

    1) Will you sign an NDA? Or if they don't know what an NDA is, "we're new to this, but we want to make sure we can trust you...is there something you can give us that will help us trust you as a developer?" NDA is the only answer I ever need to give...once I explain it.

    2) Have you done anything similar?

    3) How would you rate your skill in X, and why? This is usually asked by people that have a website using a specific cart and / or language and / or framework.

    4) I don't know how to work with you to get what I want. I have person X for graphics, person Y for legal, person Z for copywriting, etc.

    5) I have X problem. How would we work together to solve it?

    Mind you, there has been absolutely no interview where I have ever been asked all five of these questions, nor has there ever been an interview where I have been asked even say three of these questions and then had the rest of the interview play out identically. Never happens.

    The only adequate way you can prepare is with knowledge and experience. If you have those two things, it won't matter what people ask you for the most part.
