Having a mentor in the field you work in or want to work in can be the difference between success and failure. This also applies to UX designers.
Working together with a UX mentor is a great way to become a (better) UX designer.
One-on-one (video) chats and portfolio reviews are just a few of the ways our mentorship can help you achieve your goals as a designer. Read more about our UX Mentorship program below.
Here's how it works
Once you subscribe to the UX Mentorship program, we'll contact you to set up your meetings.
For every meeting, we'll create an agenda to make the best use of your time as possible. For example, we could be discussing your portfolio, help you prepare for a job interview, or write a case study together. That's up to you!
Each meeting will end with a list of actions and next steps for you to work on. We'll schedule the next meeting and use the next steps from the previous meeting as input here. And repeat!
Want to try an intake first?
You can do so here. This way, you'll be able to find out if we can help you achieve your UX goals. An intake is a one-hour video meeting where we'll discuss your goals, wants, and needs. If there's a match, we'll set up a subscription for recurring meetings.
About the mentor
Hi there! My name's Nick Groeneveld. I'm a senior UX designer with over 5 years of UX, visual design, and consultancy experience.
I've worked in many different industries where I've found out how to apply and land jobs in UX, what companies look for in a designer, and how to build a great portfolio. I'd be happy to help you achieve your UX goals.
What are some questions to ask?
The added value of a UX mentor is higher if you prepare your meetings well. One way to do this is to come up with some questions and topics beforehand. Our mentorship program includes this in the (video) chat preparation. Here are a few examples of topics and questions.
- UX portfolio review. Always include the link to your portfolio and one or more specific questions you might have.
- What are challenges I might encounter in finding my first job as a UX designer?
- How do I measure success as a designer?
There is so much more. We encourage you to come up with a list. As we mentioned before, this will help in getting you the most value for money in our UX mentorship program.
