The UX Mentorship Program by UXr
Getting started in UX can be tricky. Sometimes you just aren’t quite sure where to start. There is a lot of great help out there on the web (check out our Beginner’s guide to UX), but nothing beats simply being able to ask someone who has been there before. With that i’m happy to announce the UX Mentorship Program by UXr.
What is the UX Mentorship Program?
With over 30 years combined experience in the industry you will be able to ask a panel of Senior UX consultants and UX recruitment experts for help.
Either general questions, a quick review of your work (make sure you are allowed to send it first!) or your CV can be covered.
How does the UX Mentorship Program work?
Once you have been accepted to the program simply drop an email to the mentorship program email address which you will be provided and one of our mentors will aim to pick up your query within 24-48 hours Monday – Friday.
What are the benefits?
- Get your UX questions answered by experienced practitioners
- Improve your UX deliverables and knowledge
- Get help finding a job or improving your CV
- Make industry connections
- Have fun!

Whilst we gage interest and the time it takes to get through the questions we will have to limit the numbers initially. If demand is high we will look at adding more mentors to the panel in future.
