Closed for Christmas! Back open January 12th – contact me to pre-schedule.
Do any of these statements resonate with you?
- You’re unsure about your materials and want a review from a design professional.
- You’ve got specific questions regarding your design career and want direct conversation.
- You feel like it’s time to level up and want an assessment of where you’re at.
The landscape of UX and design careers is a tangled jungle of confusing mixed messages regarding just what employers want and how you should be presenting yourself. I believe that everyone needs the chance to present their best self and to have access to knowledge and support from professionals.
I do this by offering tough-love, direct feedback, and personalized recommendations to give you direction, clarity, and a LOT to think about based on your needs for where you are in your career journey.
Remember – when trying to help someone by critiquing their work, “it’s not nice to be nice.” I’m very friendly! But if I take your money, I have an ethical responsibility to cut down to the bone. You’re paying me to help you get a call back, not feel good about the state of your current materials. So let’s do it!
I currently offer 2 services, the Pro Review and Brand Checkup, and Real-Talk Phone Consultation; or buy both at once for a discount.
Upon payment, you will receive a pre-review questionnaire so I can hear what you want, where you’re going, and what you’re trying to accomplish.
Have questions or encounter a problem? Contact me!
Resume, LinkedIn, and portfolio reviewed with a 72 hour turnaround!
- Material Review: In-depth, concrete recommendations in a Google Doc. This is essentially a “book report” on what you provide, not a lightweight overview. 3-5 pages of single-spaced analysis.
- Tough Love: The review doesn’t pull punches. If you’ve got things that will hurt your chances, you need to know.
- Follow up email: once you’ve had time to digest and revise, you are invited to send me back your revisions for a scan of how things are looking.
Note: This does not include phone conversation.
Get immediate answers, brainstorming, and suggestions on how to present a better professional self.
- A scheduled hour of direct phone advising with me – video or audio
- A pre-review questionnaire so I can hear what you want, where you’re going, and what you’re trying to accomplish.
- A scan of your resume and portfolio so I am up to speed on the state of your materials.
Note: This does not include resume/portfolio critique.
Buy both for a discount and maximize your time! Ideas on how you can use this:
- Review then Talk: Send your materials first, get your review, then we can discuss in detail.
- Talk then Review: Don’t have anything to send? Let’s talk it out first and get you ready to go back and start writing that resume.
- 18 year professional; I’m a designer just like you.
- Experience at startups, small companies, large companies, and as a self-employed freelancer, consultant, and contractor.
- Decade of experience as design interviewer in 1-on-1 and group interviews, as well as serving on hiring committees and as an interview program coordinator.
- Degree in psychology, extensive experience as facilitator intern for individual and group psychotherapy.
- And the biggest reason… I’m one of the few working, veteran designers who is willing/passionate about starting a micro-business like this!
