Every month our UXmentor.me Plus members get a live Q&A with the mentors where they can get their questions answered.

This month we covered the following questions:

  • Where did the idea for UXmentor.me come from?
  • Where do you see the future of UXmentor.me?
  • How do you convince interviewers you can do the job, even if you are still learning tools?
  • What should the ‘About me’ page on my UX portfolio contain?
  • What are the differences between a Junior UX and a Senior UX portfolio?
  • How can I introduce user-centred design at my company?
  • How do you approach your first day as a UX Designer of one?
  • How do you help stakeholders understand their assumptions?
  • How do you make copy more accessible?
  • What are your tips for e-commerce design?
  • What bad design experiences have you learnt from?


These are resources we referenced or will help further explain the concepts we spoke about.
