I don't think I've ever been in a 15-minute meeting that made use of every single minute. Looking back at my notes, it's baffling how much information I received in 15-minutes. Kelly Anderson explained the many career paths that lead to roles in leadership. As well as spoke about her own experiences and the path she's led. All while having a portfolio review. A truly amazing display of time efficiency. After meeting with Kelly, I saw opportunities for improvements in my portfolio site and case studies and went straight to work. We even ended the session on a casual chat about my interests and shared experiences we both had. She is very personable, knowledgeable, and helpful. Thank you so much.
Kelly is an amazing mentor. She gave me a lot of useful suggestions on job-seeking strategies, including how to reach out to the right person and how to make myself stand out. Thank you Kelly!
Kelly gave helpful suggestions and feedbacks with one of my case study’s visual elements during our portfolio review - which is a highlight of her mentoring session with me.
Kelly has a very supportive attitude as a mentor. She has helped me grow by advising me to get a better job for the future. Overall, she’s an amazing person and mentor.
Kelly has been super helpful and encouraging to walk through my portfolio and given constructive feedback. She has helped me realize the importance of highlighting information to my audience.
Although the session was short, Kelly gave me some good advice on how to reach out to recruiters for Design jobs, gave me some good example LinkedIn profiles to look through, and volunteered to go through my resume offline due to the lack of time. She is also a very pleasant person to interact with and I enjoyed how she nitpicked errors on my resume. It clearly showed her value for design and how managers view resumes. If you want a quick and effective mentor-ship session, Kelly is someone I would definitely recommend. She showed me that it's important to be extremely detail-oriented to stand out in the crowd.
