Mudassir is very kind and enthusiastic about his profession. His professional advice along with his personal journey of career appears very helpful for me who's new to the field. It was really a pleasure talking to him.
Mudassir gives me advice in implementing processes to the team, being a better collaborator and building design systems. He is a great storytellor with a lovely cat. He is also very passionate about designing and teaching. I highly recommend Mudassir to any mentee looking for career advice.
Mudassir shared great insights on how to get value from books, recommended from where to start and also shared holistic insights while working as a designer. Mudassir helped me to understand the gravity of information and shared the pathway to apply them. This will help me to continue design exploration and learning.
Mudassir was really helpful in communicating his ideas and feedback. He exhibited empathy for my point of view and I believe his dual roles as a UX Design instructor and an experienced professional bolster that. He was awesome enough to share a book with me which I'm excited to read. :)
I had the pleasure of talking to Mudassir about UX career path, tools, and skills. He is quite approachable, listens patiently and I am glad that I talked to him!
Mudassir was straight forward and honest in his review of my portfolio which gave me clear directions on the improvements I can make. He also gave me advice on the pros/cons of the industry I am interested in. In the time we had, he gave back all he could with energy and thoughtfulness. And I feel grateful for meeting him!
He gave very direct feedback in my portfolio critique and supported his feedback by showing me other examples and work right on screen in the discussion.
Gave actionable insights into how I should pivot my strategy for expanding my skill set and use that to improve my job hunting efforts. Pointed out visual and strategic flaws in my current approach, elaborated with examples on how I can make changes. Overall, extremely encouraging in his approach while keeping a balance in pointing out mistakes and highlighting what unique perspective I bring to the table.
Mudassir conducted a portfolio review with me and provided very thorough, detailed feedback in order to highlight my strengths as a storyteller and designer. He also gave me advice about networking and job-hunting which was very useful. I highly recommend booking a session with him!
He advised on how to tackle career progression/job hunting from his own experiences which was pretty insightful. As well as pointers on how to be a better story teller!
I learned that there are always hidden numbers to add to one's resume and that I am more of a visual designer than a UX researcher. This has helped me tailor my resume to more product design and UX design roles.
Mudassir processes and disseminates information so fast that 1 hour long mentorship qualifies for a weekly diploma. He is super introspective, empathetic yet honest in his feedback. He has a sea of knowledge but he is driven and thrilled about life and innovation like a 20 year old. He is a great mentor
He was well prepared for our meeting based on questions I had asked prior. He's helped me get setup in my new role, thank you!
Great expertise in UX design; Super friendly and welcoming; Patience and inspiring; he elped me with case study and interview prep ;) Amazing!
