Looking to take a step forward in the UX area?
This year I will be available to mentor one additional junior/mid-level designer.
I have considerable mentoring experience through my time participating in the STIMDI mentor program.
You should be based in Europe and looking to improve as a UX designer.
I take an informal approach to mentoring, so there’s no set agenda. You’re the boss and need to take the initiative. Areas where I might be able to help include:
- Careers advice, portfolio reviews, mock interviews.
- Advice on design methods and process (large and small companies, in-house and consultancy)
- Help with specific design problems – this needs to be well scoped and you will do the heavy lifting.
- Tips on sources of Design information, courses, or events as appropriate.
My mentoring usually ends up being very flexible and often ends up covering a wide variety of subjects.
My ideal setup would be to meet face-to-face or through Skype once per month and perhaps a couple of emails in between.
At the moment this is free as long as my time permits.
