Need a little advice? Another perspective? Whether you are moving into user experience (UX) or have been there for years, we all have points in our career when talking to someone with a neutral perspective can help.
- Are you looking for a way to re-tool your skill set?
- Are you trying to break into the field of user experience?
- Maybe you’re dealing with a difficult boss, colleague, employer, client, or company.
Our group-mentoring sessions will give you another angle on how to advance your career or move beyond a difficult situation. You may think your issue is unique, but don’t worry: our mentors just may have a similar story to share. Our sessions will include mentors who have years of experience as UX directors, managers, designers, developers, and researchers – many of whom had to make that leap from a different career into the user experience field.Mentoring will take place in groups of 2 mentors to 5-8 mentees.
Mentoring groups will form on a first-come first-serve basis, so please show up on time to get mentored!
There will be 5 tables at this session, each with their own focus, to meet your mentoring needs. Choose from New to UX/Career Changers or UX Career Development.
