Hi @Tiah1Z ,
I am also trying to put a couple of evidence together and the forum have been super helpful.

Do you mind sharing hints from the feedback you got for your last application?


OC3 got approval for the CEO letter and project description,
OC1 and MC both failed I feel it is like all things considered, maybe I have fewer public speaking engagements and my supply chain projects don’t understand the value of the designer in them. so that’s why I want to try again

@Tiah1Z Welcome back to re-apply. Hope this will be a better application and be endorsed later. here are my comments

Are they too recent? More than 6 months and being consistent? Otherwise, they will look fine to me. But details should be cross check again to match Tech Nation requirements.

Does this time your OC1 change, that you have a better track record of your work in the innovation? The reason I am asking is that your track record of changing companies regularly will be difficult to change. If so, the OC1 will have much more opportunity to be endorsed.

I hope this helps @Tiah1Z

Thank you so much, I applied yesterday! Hoping good things coming

Let us know the result then. @Tiah1Z

Just got the best news of the year today! Wait around 24days. No edit on today.

Hoping other designers can get some insights from my journey


Congratulations! @Tiah1Z

Big congratulations!
