Where: On Twitter via the hashtag #uxchat co-hosted by BetterUX

Our esteemed guest host is: Oksana Ivanova, CX Specialist

Oksana is a CX Specialist in the short-term rental field, marrying together UX and CX practices. She started her career in UX about 3.5 years ago, when after being a consultant for software development process in EdTech, she was hired as a product owner. After that it was difficult to stop.

She got into UX after working for a few Estonian startups and a digital design agency. She says a year of freelance work taught her more about UX than any academy or certified courses might have.

This week, our UX community discussed the following points, which you can read through in the embedded Twitter Moment below.

  1. Sharing time! What are the most frequently asked questions in a UX interview? For you, what are the most memorable?
  2. When it comes to talking about your portfolio, do you mention only success stories or also failures? Why or why not?
  3. Design challenges: Is it okay to refuse if it’s too complicated or takes too much time?



Every week, we have a new guest host, sharing their knowledge and experience about a particular UX topic. If you want to guest host (or know anyone who’d love to) give us a shout out on Twitter @betterUX_
