Be prepared to show design results, including the processes and techniques with the emphasis on thinking, design, and collaboration that led to those results. It will also be valuable if the story behind your top examples demonstrates your ability to collaborate with others, generate consensus, and drive results.

• Excellent written communication and presentation skills as well as demonstrated visual communication skills
