After Steve`s questions about the staff manual, Joe approached Steve and delivered the NDA agreement. Almost immediately, Joe witnessed a change in Steve`s behaviour and attitude. Insightfully, instead of putting pressure on Steve, Joe simply asked him to bring the two documents home and read them in depth. Joe gave Steve a few days to make his decision, but let Steve know that a condition for future employment was Steve`s decision to sign both documents. Remember to disinfect the information you include in your case studies: in one case, a company learned that confidentiality agreements are applicable, but discovered that documents should be written carefully. The case concerned IDX Systems Corporation and Epic Systems Corporation, which manufacture both software for managing the financial aspect of a medical practice, including billing, insurance reimbursement and collection. If you can only talk about your project in private, the UX case studies you present in your UX-Design portfolio should be brief summaries. In a paragraph, explain your mission and role and end with a sentence indicating that you are ready to speak more in an interview. Our research and vigorous response have made the regulatory organization feel. Our client has renounced his affiliation without liability of costs and with the agreement that the circumstances of his departure will be treated confidentially. Perhaps more importantly, you may be bad for a recruiter if you break your NDA. If you freely and unauthorisedly disclose confidential information in your UX case studies and job interviews, your recruiter will think that you cannot trust trade secrets. It`s catastrophic for your application and it doesn`t make sense for you to take such a risk if your UX case study is intended to help you get a job.
In addition, you should always send your employer a copy of your final UX case study before publishing it, in case you accidentally recorded confidential information. Always ask for the green light. Most designers are familiar with confidentiality agreements. As a general rule, your employer asks you to sign such an agreement to prevent you from disclosing confidential information. But when you write your UX case studies, your NDAs suddenly appear as an obstacle.
