Last month I had the opportunity to spend time with Cameron Moll, founder of Authentic Jobs and host of Hired.fm. We covered a lot of ground including, product design at Pinterest, sourcing talent in the Bay Area, portfolio reviews, unsolicited redesigns, work/life balance, and more.

You should go listen to it NOW.

Designing the machine…

My deepest thanks to Cameron for being not only a great interviewer but also a fantastic editor. During our time together we talked about how he should use Pinterest to find ideas for his son’s Pinewood Derby cars, why I can’t stand it when candidate’s blame the client, and how the world needs more designers.

We talked for over seventy-five minutes but he somehow managed to cull it down to a cogent twenty-eight. Sort of makes me wish he could do that for all my conversations.
