I'm currently in Tech Sales. However, I want to work with FAANG; it's literally my greatest dream. I have a UX Design Cert from General Assembly that I earned last year. After months of applications and rejections, I left and got into tech sales because I knew I'd easily get a job and bills had to be paid. I think I failed to get jobs because of a lack of visual design skills (my specialties were in project management and user research), and weak portfolio. What should I do?

    They get to know you first and ask about you and your previous experiences. You then do a teach back mini lesson on a topic like Linkedin, Personal Branding, or Resumes. After that they provide feedback and see how you react to it.

    They ask about your approach to teaching, setting norms in virtual spaces, and a lot of behavioral interview type of questions.
