- Working as a UX designer lets you influence the look and feel of how people interact with digital products by making them more intuitive and easier to use. According to CNN, user experience designer is one of the top 100 best jobs in America. Because UX design is a growing industry, many candidates are coming in with a background in traditional design. Some are coming straight out of college, and others are coming from completely different fields. No matter where you're at, you might be surprised by the fact that the interview process for a UX designer position isn't quite like interviewing for other positions.
