    How do you keep up-to-date on new trends and changes in your line of work?

      How to Answer

      Google is an organization that believes in career and personal development and one way that your interviewer will try to gauge your belief in career development is by asking a question like this. Ideally, they want to hear that you go the extra mile by participating in continuing education opportunities, attending seminars or training, and reading up on your field. Show your interviewer that you are passionate about your field and growing within it by openly discussing how you stay on top of industry trends and news.

      Ryan's Answer

      "I keep up to date on new trends and ideas in our field through a variety of sources. I am a member of the UX Collective and subscribe to and read their weekly newsletter. This is a great source for new happenings and great ideas. Over the past two years, my current employer has sponsored me to go to some great seminars across the country. I love having the opportunity to meet and network with others in my field and built some great contacts recently."

      Rachelle's Answer

I also follow a few of my favorite influencers on social media as I find they post some very thought-provoking and intriguing articles and blog posts on a regular basis."

      "I have an application called flip-board, which lets me be up-to-date with the most relevant events every day on topics that interest me."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Flipboard is a great app - I use it too! What kind of topics and stories do you subscribe to? This will give the interviewer more perspective.
