UX MENTORING &
A little guidance goes a long way.
Looking to break into UX?
Graduating? Trying to move into UX? Your portfolio is key to unlocking opportunities.
Busy hiring managers often skip applications that lack portfolios. Competition is fierce. Your portfolio can dictate whether you get a call or a form letter.
Increase your chances of landing that pivotal first interview. Work with me on polishing your portfolio and making it shine. I've hired UX talent of all types and know good (and bad) portfolios when I see them. I've reviewed hundreds of job applications and know what it takes to make the first cut.
Together we'll tackle some tough questions:
Are you highlighting the right projects?
Are you impressing with strong copy and storytelling?
Are you using the right visuals to showcase your talents?
Are you providing the right details to catch recruiters?
Are you standing out with a professional, polished format and structure?

LIVE RESUME REVIEW
Before employers look at your portfolio they look at your resume. Make sure you’re highlighting the right skills and experience.
In this session I do a live walkthrough as if I were a hiring manager seeing your resume for the first time. I talk through what I'm looking for, what I'm noticing, and what's missing.
A 1-hour Zoom call that covers:
A review of one resume
- A review of one cover letter
In-depth recommendations and prioritization
UX interviews often involve several rounds. Many involve portfolio presentations and 'scenario tests,' especially for entry level roles.
I'll help you prepare. We'll review common questions. We'll discuss how to take interviewers through your portfolio and other projects. We'll discuss scenario tests and how to approach them.
