We recognize the importance of mentoring in Human Centered Design & Engineering career development work to provide mentorship to as many students who request this experience. 

Our goal for the 2023-2024 academic year is to group every student in a mentor pod that meets routinely with an external mentor from January through May 2024. Student Mentoring Pod sign ups are open through Sunday, November 26th at 11:59pm.  Click here to sign up.

Interested in serving as a mentor?

Pods meet virtually, once per month from January through May 2024. Meeting times are determined based on the mentor's availability. Discussion topics might include interviewing skills, portfolios, LinkedIn profiles, whiteboarding practice, navigating job descriptions, salaries and negotiation, networking techniques, UX titles, pivoting to UX from other industries, and other topics of interest to the specific pod. Sign up to mentor a pod here »
