Hi, I’m Alicja!
I’m a Product Designer with over 8 years of experience supporting multimillion-dollar SaaS companies in delivering top industry products to their customers. I’ve mentored 100s of students of design bootcamps like DesignLab, CareerFoundry and CodersLab. I’m a founder of Outdraw Design, Outdraw Academy, and Design Debt 101.
Over my career, I had a chance to get to know the design recruitment process as a candidate, as a mentor and as a hiring team member. I’m proud to say that I’ve prepared 100s of design students for their job search, reviewed over 1000 portfolios and interviewed 100s of candidates from different disciplines.
As a result from working with design candidates from all levels, I’ve discovered what holds them back and what are the typical mistakes they make.
I’ve created a guide I wish I had when starting my design career. It prepares you for the interview process, answers the most common questions, and prevents you from making typical mistakes. This program synthesises the best strategies I learned from coaching design students, interviewing designers, and my experiences as a candidate.
