12 Common Web Design Interview Questions

In this article, we will be discussing common questions that web and graphic design companies may ask you in your in-person interview. Of course, there's no "right" answer for any of these (that'd be too easy, wouldn't it?). Here we go:

1. Why do you want this position?

As long as the answer isn't "I need the money," this should be an easy one.

2. What interests you about our company?

Read through the company's website and any other marketing materials you may have access to. Good, safe answers are:
  • "I love the work your company does and I want to be part of it.
  • "I'm looking for a place where I can apply and further develop my skills"
  • "I believe I can be a valuable asset to your company" (Elaborate more on why. See #3)

3. What makes you an asset to our company?

This is the chance for your sales pitch. Tell the interviewer how awesome you are and why your skills are a great fit for the company.

4. Where you see yourself in 5 years?

The answer will vary for each person. Some people will want to be experts in what they do, while others may see themselves in a more of a management role. Think about what you want for yourself, and confidently answer this question.

5. What's your greatest strength? Weakness?

This helps us identify where you fit into the company. There's no "right" answer. Just be honest and concise.

6. If a client is in the [______] industry and wanted to do [________] with their website, what advice would you give them?

We like creative thinkers and well rounded people. Be prepared to answer these types of questions if you're applying for an agency type of company or one with a very broad range of clients.

7. Do you read any industry publications or websites? If so, which ones?

Showing interest in your field outside of office hours may indicate you really love what you're doing (and that's always a good thing). If you don't subscribe to any publications or websites, it's never too late.

8. How do you handle pressure and multiple deadlines?

More often than not, you'll be working on multiple projects with deadlines that may overlap. This is an excellent opportunity to show off your project management and task prioritization skills.

9. What do you do when you're faced with something you've never done before or if you're stuck on a problem?

Like all things in business, time is money. Show how resourceful you can be here. Think about how you can make use of the Internet, your coworkers, and your own network to complete projects within or under budget.

10. What's your favorite portfolio piece?

Be prepared to tell us what it is and why.

11. Why should we hire you instead of the other _____ people applying for this position?

This is often the closer. Think about what makes you unique, what skills separate you from the others, and why you want it or deserve it more than anybody else.
Hopefully this inside info will help you on your next job interview. If you have any other questions to add to our list, please add them to the comments below.

12. Why are you leaving your current company?

This is a helpful question to help identify any underlying issues. If you were fired or laid off from your previous position, please be honest and explain the circumstances. It's much better to hear it from you than finding out from checking out references. Being terminated isn't always a red flag or a deal breaker as long as you can explain yourself. If it's something work related, like you weren't satisfied with the projects or you were hitting a career ceiling, it's often helpful for both your potential employer and you to see if you're a right fit for each other.
