    Yeah 7 hours usually. Sometimes come in earlier, work during lunch or stay late. But to be honest, try not to do that anymore. After always coming in early and leaving late got told off that I am doing too much work unrelated stuff - ha. While it was just research for ideas... Often that extra mile is left unnoticed at the office, so leave on time spend time on my other projects.

    Probably Bali first, been there for holiday couple times and absolutely loved it! Thanks for the link :) Been reading a lot about it, the only issue is that I won't be able to take clients from there with any sort of visa which is such a shame. When I was on holiday randomly managed to get two gigs while travelling, but it gets tricky if I would like to do more of it..

    Yeah, its 9 - 5 with one hour lunch break. But I usually do 8.30 to 4.30. It is slightly flexible, but still not as flexible as I would like to. (Im in UK)

    I have a plan to do this next year! Sitting in the office 9-5 is not for me definitely... First stop probably Indonesia where would like to stay few months, still not sure about visas tho, any advice would help!

  • Posted to UX Designer: Is a proper portfolio really necessary?, Jan 23, 2017

    Hi! I spent about 6 months searching for a new UX job and can share my experience...

    What if noticed from all the comments I got - for UX or digital designer roles it is important to show the process or the way you approach the problem, so case studies always work better. Unless you are applying for pure UI or artworker role - traditional portfolio would work just fine.

    I think it is always good to show a mix of skills in your portfolio - after I got my UX job 4 months ago my manager mentioned that a lot of other candidates were kind of one dimensional - were very UX focused and had no UI skills or had good UI skills, but didin't take UX in consideration enough. That I think applies to the portfolio too.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Aside from interviews, how do you test potential candidates?, Jan 20, 2016

    Every time company liked me after the first interview, they gave me some sort of task to do before second interview. The only company which hired me after first interview without any task or test is the company I am working for now - I guess I've been lucky that one time!

    But I totally get it, recently one company contacted me about a job opportunity and it sounded good until they gave me a task to do - I realised It is not exactly something I would feel comfortable doing or something i would really enjoy doing.

    So even though it is often annoying to do something for free before someone hired you, often is a good test for a designer and the company to see if that job is a good fit.
