Jacob was so honest, yet so nice :) He really helped me understand the flaws in my portfolio and what I needed to do to make it better. He said it's important to ask the "Why?" especially in the design process and it has been ingrained in my brain ever since. It really has helped me to think deeper as a designer so I'm SO thankful for his insight.
Jacob was phenomenal! Not only was he down to earth, you could tell he was passionate about helping others. He gave great insight into his career as well as valuable employment suggest, (go-figure he works at linkedIn). I would recommend connecting with Jacob. Thanks for the conversation Jacob!
Jacob was extremely helpful with providing career advice and portfolio feedback! After chatting with Jacob, I was able to plan out what actions I need to take to strengthen my portfolio and gain insight on how to approach my short term goals for my career. It was great to discuss in depth about his passion for design, inclusion and diversity. I definitely learned how to execute it more to the design process.
I had a great conversation with Jacob about design. He is easy going and extremely passionate about what he does and it translates through the screen.

He has helped me focus on my story and become more intentional when applying to jobs.
