Mentorship goals

The basis of a mentoring relationship is a conversation. However, if there’s no direction or end goal to frame these conversations, it’ll be a waste of time for both the Mentor and Mentee.
That’s why in UX Tree, we decided to spice things up by introducing the assignment for the Mentee. This assignment needs to be completed in four-months time, with ongoing support from Mentor.

Other examples of Mentee’s goals for a mentoring relationship could be:

  • Improving soft skills
  • Networking
  • Learning the workplace culture
  • Gain visibility for potential promotions
  • Improving problem-solving skills

Plan and project

The program will be entirely virtual, with meetings between you and your mentor taking place using web conferencing software such as Slack and Google Meet. Throughout the program, you will receive ongoing design feedback from your mentor and peer support from our community via our Slack workspace.

Upon completion of the program, you will submit a case study. After review and approval, you will receive a certificate to add to your LinkedIn and portfolio page.
