Why become a mentor?

Giveback

Give back

Giving advice is a way of giving back to the industry. By helping students reach their fullest potential, you help the UX industry thrive.

More knowledge

By helping students improve their industry knowledge, mentors build on their own. Because the best way to understand a concept is to explain it to someone else!

More Knowledge
Sharing

Sharing is caring

As a UX designer you love helping people. Mentoring means you can connect and collaborate with even more minds, to continue to learn and understand others.

Rewarding

Mentoring is fun! Seeing a student learn, grow and start their UX career is a wonderful experience most mentors never forget.

How will I connect with students?

Once assigned a school or class by Digital Influx, the school will be in touch. Via pre-recorded videos or email, you send across your feedback on student design projects. The school then shares it to students in class. As a UX mentor, you will never be in direct contact with a student, only the school.

Don’t worry, Digital Influx initially liaises with everyone to help everything run smoothly.
