Steve was amazing. He really took the time to understand where I was wanting to go in my career and providing actionable feedback to help me achieve my goals. Steve is extremely knowledgable and you can tell that he truly cares about helping the next generation of designer. I'm looking forward to talking with him again.
Steve spent time understanding my journey to UX design and helped me articulate a plan for my career. He guided me to see value in the transferrable skill set I possess and how to position and leverage all that I bring to the table. He was amazingly insightful and gave me the confidence to move forward as I shift my career to UX design. His input on my portfolio is completely aligned to his advice and I am definitely acting on it to stand out as a designer. He went way beyond what I expected from the session and I am definitely going to seek his guidance out in the weeks to come.
I have had a couple of calls with Steve so far and the value that I got from them is immeasurable. We started with a basic portfolio and resume review, and then walked through my work experience. Steve has a lot of great experience and frameworks in his toolbelt. Just by asking a few right questions he could direct me to what my true industry interests are. Even in between calls, he is dedicated to make my portfolio better as I work through the re-design of one of my projects. Steve has selflessly worked towards digging into what my interests and experience point towards. He has already improved the way I look at designing solutions. He has helped me with interview prep.
Truly cares about mentees. Have someone to turn to for career advice and portfolio feedback.
Steve is a great mentor! During my mentoring session, I felt that Steve truly cared about helping me in my job search. He took the time to get to know me, my past experience, and my goals for the future. He even took additional time out of his schedule to speak with me and send me information outside of our meeting.
Steve really takes an interest in the people he mentors. Not only does he give solid advice on portfolio and hiring, but perhaps more importantly, he listens to the story you’re trying to tell. And in doing so, helps you craft a better, more relevant portfolio trailered to the companies & industries you’re most interested in.
Steve is a fantastic and inspirational mentor. He is very helpful, very understanding and always willing to help. He shared insights about design career and professional tips to help me grow. I would like to thank him for all the guidance and mentoring given to me.
Steve is organized and has a lot of insight into the design business. But most importantly, he is interested in your story and what you have to say about design. Steve's design wisdom is helping me to look into the design business with a fresh set of eyes. A set of eyes that have seen the inside of the business for many years!
