What will your mentor help you with?

Your design mentor will guide you in creating a road map to reach your goals. Your mentor’s career path in design can open you up to possibilities and inspire you to take action in your design career. Are you not sure if your project is going the right direction? Are you stuck? Having someone to give you feedback, help you refine your design approach, or even just to be a creative sounding board can make all the difference.

As a designer, you will work a lot with the stakeholder. Your mentor will work with you on your presentation and communication skills to help you present your ideas and design solutions with confidence. You’ll get to discuss the newest trends in the design industry, and will also get advice on additional resources you can leverage, including books, articles, design events or design tools.

Conversations about how you can improve with a design mentor ensures that you maintain focus on your career growth while challenging you to hold yourself accountable. Long-term career growth is often about making small, daily improvements as opposed to big leaps.

Professional design contacts can often be a key to success. Your mentor can offer an opportunity by introducing you to relevant connections in the field of design, expanding your existing network of design professionals.

My goal was to switch career from architecture to UX design and get a full-time job within six months. My mentor helped me navigate in the UX world while I was applying for jobs and going to interviews. I’m happy to say I managed to reach this goal and now I enjoy my new role in Slevomat.

Mako Ueda
UX Researcher
Avast
I signed up for the mentorship program when I was at a crossroad in my career. I knew I wanted to change my career path, but I didn’t know what or how. But more than anything, having a mentor who was caring, understanding, and genuinely wanted the best for me made me feel safe and supported.
