17:11:57 From chelsea : Please queue up your questions in the chat 🙂
17:12:04 From Irem Ozekes : Your interviewer is trying to see how you’ll collaborate together if you were to get hired for the role
17:13:17 From chelsea : Exactly, interviewer is trying to gauge if you can ask the right questions, manage time, and generate ideas in a pressured environment
17:14:10 From Irem Ozekes : ^^^^^^^
17:15:08 From Irem Ozekes : Iconic!
17:15:18 From Irem Ozekes : So useful to see a whiteboarding exercise in action
17:15:33 From Asha Raval : THANK YOU GUYS!!!!!
17:15:37 From Larah Mazon : Gonna be super insightful!
17:15:55 From Asha Raval : I always have such fear of this and its great to see actual designers doing it!
17:18:09 From chelsea : Notice how she jots down everything I mentioned..
17:21:05 From chelsea : https://thoughtspot.zoom.us/j/95855406369
17:24:21 From Rohith Kumar : @chelsea Is water limited / unlimited?
17:24:53 From chelsea : Unlimited amount of water or fertilizer
17:27:13 From Rohith Kumar : Is the farmland should be single / multi crop ?
17:27:21 From shunyawang : Could you make the words bigger?
17:27:22 From chelsea : Single crop
17:36:44 From chelsea : Queue in your questions and comments here 🥳
17:38:49 From may : i don’t really get it what’s the use of framework? or what’s the benefits of it? or how do i use it :)
17:40:04 From chelsea : Great Q. Wei used framework to convince me the interviewer of choosing to do a phone app. In some cases we can skip it
17:41:41 From may : ooh, what another example there would be other than technology to use
17:42:36 From Asha Raval : Do you have to sketch all three ideas or can you just pick one flow?
17:42:42 From chelsea : Pick one flow
17:43:06 From Ocean Fung : Can I suggest solution not limited to apps??the pain point
17:44:01 From Ocean Fung : On of the pain point is the farm is huge, what if I suggest to provide vehicle, and the app can use GPS to locate the vehicle?
17:44:30 From Ashley Yeum : Can we use design system for the whiteboard exercise?
17:45:03 From may : that’s add up on the farm owner cost
17:46:20 From Ocean Fung : vehicle can be low cost at bike
17:46:22 From Ocean Fung : as
17:48:04 From Asha Raval : What are your suggestions for confidently defending your design decisions? I tend to get very nervous and answer by rambling.
17:48:31 From chelsea : These are great questions - keep them coming!
17:48:40 From may : is it really necessary to draw wireframes? or i can just map the user flow/user journey from start to end.
17:49:15 From Nia Cui : How do interviewer evaluate the whiteboard exercise? (By how solid the solution is or the thought process, etc.)
17:49:51 From Asha Raval : Great job!!
17:51:30 From may : nice!
17:51:38 From Jessica Truong : Yay, that was great to see!
17:51:39 From Ocean Fung : To what extend we can ask questions to interviewer about the challenge??(Afraid asking too much or too stupid lol)
17:52:01 From Breea Kobernick : what if the interviewer asks you a question and the solution doesn’t match your design? Should you redesign your screen? or just continue with your design? Is it ok to start creating another solution?
17:52:09 From Asha Raval : How do you get good at this? Practice and record yourself daily? With others?
17:53:01 From Dae Young Kim : Should we jot down the user scenario and a site map before getting into the wireframing stage? I always have trouble managing my time
17:54:00 From may : yah thanks!
17:54:44 From michelle : I had a live challenge interview where I was given scenario and was told to craft the problem and then go into my thought process, etc. It threw me off at first, but is that common for an interview challenge also?
17:58:25 From Irem Ozekes : Good presentation
17:58:27 From Irem Ozekes : Very useful

17:59:19 From chloe zeng : Very helpful, thank you!
17:59:30 From Breea Kobernick : If you have 3 interviewers in the meeting how are you supposed to include all of them? should you give them roles like “you will be a user” “you will be someone from the business” “you will be an engineer” or will they are be there to answer questions
18:00:01 From Jessica Truong : If we find someone to practice with, how do we answer their questions throughout the exercise? Do we just decide the answer on the fly?
18:10:41 From chelsea : had a live challenge interview where I was given scenario and was told to craft the problem and then go into my thought process, etc. It threw me off at first, but is that common for an interview challenge also?
