Would love to hear an update on this OP. I don’t have much specific advice to offer since I’ve never been done any hiring/HR that involved design portfolios, but that said I hope you get it! If your interview is still coming up, try to practice answering the tougher questions with a friend or someone so you can hear yourself responding out loud, confidently and assuredly. I’ve found that when HR opens up a wider applicant pool it means they are looking for someone who isn’t just good on paper. Also remember that often people will hire the right person over the perfect resume/experience… Focus on showing them that you’re the right person and that you have tons of drive and initiative – have lots of examples of how you have gone over and above in a few different jobs in a few different ways… not a lot of people do that (go beyond the job description) and when they do I find it *really* stands out to the interviewer. Hope you get it!!
