How To Find A UX Mentor
Learning how to find a UX mentor is easy with Designlab. Sign up for our UX Academy course and be matched with an experienced UX design mentor who will help you learn the ropes of the industry. While finding a UX mentor on your own can be difficult, we make it easy to connect with the ideal mentor who understands your goals and priorities. Your mentor will always be there to answer your questions and give meaningful insights into your work.
If you’re interested in becoming a UX designer, this is the perfect first step to success in your future career.
About Our UX Mentorship Program
UX mentorship is a huge part of our courses, and is one of the main learning components of our career-accelerator bootcamp, UX Academy. We have 500+ mentors on board to support our students—all of whom are industry professionals with an average of 5-7 years of experience in the UI/UX design industry, each with their own unique backgrounds. They each have a large network of fellow designers, and, as such, will be able to help you feel comfortable walking into a design role, because it’s a space they’re highly familiar with themselves.
Perhaps most importantly, our mentors value their mentees as people. Our mentors chose to partner with us because they want to positively impact the next generation of future designers. Your mentor should make you feel seen as both a student and as a designer, and you should feel that they care about you in both respects as well.
We partner with mentors from companies like Airbnb, Amazon, Facebook, HubSpot, Walmart, Etsy, Google, and many more. Our mentors are diverse in location, timezone, gender, teaching style, age, and experience. One thing they all have in common, however, is a deep investment in helping their mentees learn!
