"When interviewing for a UX design position, be prepared to speak to your design process, preferences, and project experience. Employers are looking for candidates that can adapt their company's brand aesthetic in a way that provides a satisfying experience for their users. Be ready to answer questions about your ability to work closely with engineers and project managers as well as your knowledge of graphic design programs, web development, and user interface design."
How do you form positive relationships with developers and/or stakeholders?
Be on their side. Show them that rather than being interference in a relationship, that you can serve as an interlocutor. Bring evidence.
