Take notice of the skills required for the position.
- Extensive knowledge and experience driving and applying the user centred design processes
- working collaboratively with customers and teams
Which of these skills do you already have?
I have strong collaboration skills which I have developed over 15 years of working in IT teams. I have the ability to speak simply of complex concepts, as a way of bridging the gap between technical specialists and non-technical people.
How would you show a prospective employer that you do have these skills?
- By discussing real situations where I have been in this position. Elaborating upon the circumstances and specifying the details of the technical and non-technical people who were involved.
- An Example: While working for a Brisbane software firm, I was designated as a liaison between a number of technical teams (support teams, the software development team), trainers(who teach clients to use the software) and the clients. I became so effective at this role that I attended a number of trade shows and even performed sales demonstrations for the product. This was in spite of my regular role as a hardware support engineer.
