As a mentee, this program will consist of regular 1-1 meetings with me via video call, where you and I will discuss your career aspirations, strategies to break into tech or become proficient in Product design, and other topics as determined by your needs. At our first few meetings, we will create a plan for you that will help you track your progress toward achieving your goals. We will check in on how you're doing on a regular basis. If you are interested in learning Product Design, I'll give you a list of resources that have been most helpful to me. You can use the 1-1 meetings to ask questions, solicit feedback on your projects, or get help with any pressing design issues you may be experiencing.
Each cohort will consist of 3-5 individuals that I will meet with biweekly and provide guidance, resources, and help in navigating a career in product design. By creating small cohorts of 3-5 individuals every couple of months, rather than meeting 3-5 new people every week, I can really pay attention to each person's growth and make sure they are on track for success.
Thank you for your interest. I didn't initially anticipate the amount of applications I would get. I received almost 300 applications within the first 4 hours. I'm not really certain right now, but I anticipate applications will reopen some time in 2022. Meanwhile, you can sign up to be the first to know when the applications reopen and also check out my list of curated resources while you wait.
Apply here. Please provide as much information as possible in the application. After you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation email, and if you are selected, you will receive a welcome email with next steps.
Acceptance into the program would be on a rolling basis, so essentially, even if you aren’t selected immediately, as my availability frees up and more people transition from this program into stable careers, you could get an invitation to join the program so please be on the lookout.
All are welcome to apply. This program is beneficial for anyone with a desire to gain new skills in product design or to explore new potential growth areas, regardless of their experience.
Yes, it is, but who knows, that could change 😉
Well, not really. This isn’t a design course or bootcamp. There are already so many amazing resources available out there and I could definitely point you to a few. What makes this program valuable is what you might not learn in those courses or bootcamps, such as how to break into tech or grow your career as a designer
Sit tight, check out my resources page and start or keep learning. This will hopefully give you a head start on the basics and we can jump straight into the more advanced topics like optimizing your portfolio and effective job-hunting strategies once you join the program.
Funny you should ask, I was thinking about that as well 😅. Please reach out to me and I’d be happy to introduce you to some of the most talented, ambitious designers I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with. Many of them already have a few years of design experience and are looking for new opportunities.
