You're required to submit your CV and have the option to send a cover letter too.  Expect a 1 - 4 week wait before advancing to the next stage​

How to respond for success​

Although it was optional, I did submit a cover letter. I like to use my cover letter to tell the company what I like about them / their products and how I can contribute as a designer. ​

Portfolio Review​

If your CV is successful, you'll be asked to submit a Portfolio. I hadn't had a UI role previously, therefore I only had group UI projects from University to refer too.​

How to respond for success​

I made sure to focus on what I worked on within the group projects at uni, and how the overall projects came together as a team effort. I still included Graphic design projects that I had worked on, also any self-initiated projects and made sure that I made it clear as to why I wanted to get into UI design and my interest in the Product Design field. I also think it's important to share parts of your personality at this stage, as the interviewer hasn't met you face-to-face yet. I included some of my interests within my CV and this was reflected mostly in my self-initiated projects.

Expect a 1 - 4 week wait before advancing to the next stage.​

Design Task​

The final stage of the application process was to complete a UI Design task.​

How to respond for success​

Once you get your brief set, be super open minded and make sure you go through the design process correctly. if you have previous design projects, use that to guide you through. You'll most likely be presenting your design task back to your hiring managers so make sure you're confident in talking them through your work and how you came to your final design idea.
