  • A whiteboard challenge is a typical technical interview in the hiring process for UX design roles. It is where the hiring managers and the team give a design problem and evaluate how the candidates tackle it. It is more about how candidates collaborate with the team than what is being created on the spot.

    In this workshop, we will practice a whiteboard challenge together with the mentors and learn from how mentors approach these challenges themselves.
