The clarity I've gained working with Ana has meant the world to me. I love that I'm able to bounce ideas related to what I want to achieve and Ana helps me create an action plan for them. I feel like I'm finally moving forward in the right direction.
I am so so lucky to get Ana as my mentor! She is very kind and always helped with my difficulties. Thanks to Ana I got the job I was dreaming about. I had a lot of mentors in my own country before, but you are my best! 🙂
"Ana is a fount of knowledge when it comes to UX design, always willing to develop her know-how and stay fresh with her designs. She also cares about enabling the potential in others, which is what I have appreciated her for the most while working together, having taught me user-centred design skills and concepts."
Ana is a supportive and full of patience mentor, also a professional UX designer. She was my mentor when I was preparing for my interviews and redesigning my website. Instead of giving general feedback, she could see through my problems clearly and gave practical and detailed suggestions.
Coaching VS Mentoring
What are the differences between coaching and mentoring, and how can this program provide you with the best of both worlds?
We’ll analyze your goals and needs during our first intro call to ensure not only we’re the right fit but that you have the right amount of support and guidance (mentoring) and you’re still able to grow your skills and confidence to make your own decisions (coaching).
- Like most coaching programs, there’s a set duration to achieve your goals; however, our relationship from a mentoring perspective can be ongoing and last for as long as you need!
- Depending on your own needs, the sessions and calls will be more or less structured. If you need more mentoring, then you’ll probably want to set your own agenda for most calls.
- As someone experienced and qualified in UX, I can provide you skills-focused coaching and additional support as a mentor.
What can you do in this program?
Achieve your personal career goals
Getting started in UX can be daunting, especially if you aren’t 100% sure about the right career path for you. I can help you gain clarity and guide you towards your first steps.
Maybe you want to start as a UX generalist to have a better overview. Or specializing in a specific field. Or even be a freelancer. I’m here to help. I’ve been there too.
Create a relevant portfolio
Your UX portfolio needs to showcase work that is relevant to the type of jobs you want to attract, while also highlighting your own unique process and what makes you different.
Depending on your experience (or lack of) this can be challenging. I can guide you towards the right direction, whether you have tons of projects to select or you’re starting a new case study from scratch.
Learn UX with me
There are several free self-paced courses and materials out there for both beginners and advanced. However, most of them still have lower completion rates. Why? Because they lack a more structured support, a sense of community and accountability.
A mentor will keep you accountable while also providing you extra support for these self-paced initiatives.
Ongoing feedback & support
Have you just landed your first project or UX role? Congratulations! But your journey isn’t over yet.
If you feel nervous and anxious, you probably would welcome some support from a more experienced UX professional. I can give you detailed feedback on your current project (s) and guide you towards your next career steps while you grow your skills and confidence.
How does this all work?
Step 1. Fill the super short form
Please fill my form to apply for a 1:1 mentorship program with me. If you prefer to have a chat first, you can either book a quick 15min free call for any program related questions or a first session here. The intro call is a full strategy session with value on its own. It’s pitch & commitment-free for both of us and doesn’t guarantee a spot in the program but will allow you to experience a full session.
Step 2. Wait for approval
If we both feel we’re the right fit to work together, you’ll be prompted to sign up for a subscription that you can cancel anytime in case you’ve chosen a monthly plan. Even if you have defined specific goals and deadlines, you’ll still be able to renew or cancel your plan every month. The cost of the program depends on your preferred options. For monthly plans the amount is paid at the beginning of each month, and for 6-month or annual plans, this amount is paid in full. 6-month or annual plans can’t be cancelled and are not refundable.
Step 3. Book your calls in advance
With any program, you get a certain amount of hours that you can spend on video call or audio sessions via skype or hangouts. You can book 30-min or 60-min slot, so you can make the best use of your hours. I advise you to book your calls as much as in advance as you can to avoid availability conflicts and to help us create a routine.
Step 4. Tracking Progress & Unlimited Emails
During any 1:1 mentorship program, you’ll be able to email me any time – you’ll receive a reply within 48h. Depending on your goals and preferred way of working, we’ll be sharing a common tracker so we can track your progress and understand the areas you need more help with.
