Mentee Application for 2020 UXPA International Mentorship Program
The UXPA International mentorship program promotes learning partnerships among professionals in the UX field as well as those getting started in the field. We aim to match (as best we can) UX professionals based on various criteria such as their career development goals and area of expertise.
The third 2020 cohort for this program is from Oct-Dec 2020. To participate, mentors and mentees must submit their applications by Sept 25, 2020. Completing this form does not guarantee that you will be matched. In the event that we do not have enough mentors or mentees, you may be added to a waitlist for the next cohort. Pairs are expected to have online meetings every other week: Oct 1 – Dec 31, 2020.
At the end of the term, we’ll ask for your feedback in an attempt to improve our program.
