Trying to make the move from designer to manager? In this episode we chat about how to make your portfolio presentation stand out.

key takeaways

Don’t be afraid to lead during the interview, your presentation is the perfect opportunity to direct the discussion towards the areas you most want to talk about.

Speak about the impact you have had on your team in the past, which competencies have you developed both inside and outside of work that show your skills and experience.

If you are interviewing for a management role, you need to show that you have experience of leading. Instead of explaining how you came to a decision, can you explain how you encouraged everyone on your team to believe in your ideas as much as you did.
