    ... with one of the biggest tech companies in the entire world for a designer position.

    Been coming on this forum to discuss technology, design, user interface, software, and everything in between since I was 12 years old on an iMac G3.

    This would be a dream come true.

    Thanks for being a great community, sharing my passion, and teaching me so much. I'll let you know how it goes.

    It felt like less of an interview and more of a screening process - what skills do you have, are you familiar with these? How many years of experience? Can you do this? Can you do that? What are some examples? Etc.

    It's funny that this thread came up I'll have my first in person interview on August 1st every other interview I've had for the last 15 years has been by phone.

    My recommendation for phone interviews is to walk while taking it burns off the stress and helps you think better

    Isn’t that a typical first interview? It is in my experience. Time to draft a thank you email, right? Good luck. Hope you the second interview.

    I definitely have the experience and technical skills, the recruiter was very cordial and nice, but didn't leave much for discussion or questions. I am happy. Whatever happens, happens.

    In that case, since this interview was with the talent recruiter then you have an excellent chance for a second with technical management. Best of luck going forward.

    Depends if it's an internal or external recruiters. Or a headhunter. Internal recruiters and headhunters tend to know what a candidate needs to know or have experience with rather than an external recruiter.
