    User Experience Designer, Inclusive Product Design Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Wall Street Journal (United States) in Jan 2021

    Interview

    The WSJ DXS department reached out to me and asked me to interview for the UX Designer, Inclusive Product Design position. My first interview was with the two VPs of Design. I interviewed with the Senior Product Designer and Lead Product Designer and two other Heads of Departments. The interviews were scheduled by one of the VPs of Design, and it took 5+ weeks to complete. It was all digital during cover from Dec 2020 to January 2021. Finally, in the end, I was told the following: While we were very impressed with your qualifications, I regret to inform you that we decided to proceed with another candidate who we believe more closely matches what we are looking for in the position. Advice for you: They are subscription base, and it's a newsroom. If you don't have newsroom experience or a long history of proven UX Design / Research that shows you can convert people to subscribers, seek other positions. Also, I'm black, and there was not a single black person who interviewed me. It has been proven that your chances of landing the job increase by 35% when a person who matches your identity interviews you. Best of luck to you.
