Interactive Designer: Recruiting and Retaining the Right Talent for the Role

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

Throughout my career I have spoken to hundreds of creative leaders who have been challenged with finding the right Interactive Designer for their department. Hiring Interactive Designers is challenging because of the diverse and constantly evolving job descriptions, skill sets, and career paths that are associated with the role. And while on the surface two Interactive Designers may appear very similar as their resumes may reflect similar skills, experiences, and portfolio pieces, beneath the surface very clear differences relating to key strengths and long-term career aspirations will emerge. The disparity between roles, responsibilities, and career goals of Interactive Designers results in a difficult hiring process, which can lead to hiring the wrong candidate. Finding the best long term fit for the organization requires hiring managers to understand the talent classes that have emerged within the interactive design discipline.
