possible mentoring areas
CV Review and JOB preparation
You plan to enter the field of user research and want to prepare for your first interviews. I know what recruiters and research managers want to see and will practice with you for your first interviews.
interviewing situations and script writing
Running an interview with a stranger is never easy. I will show you the tricks you need for moderating insightful user interviews, creating relaxed and empathetic environments and gaining confidence in any interview situation.
public speaking and presentations
As a user researcher, you are measured by the impact your work has on the product or service you want to improve. User research is just as powerful as the person who explains it to others. I will show you how to structure your presentations and tell convincing stories based on your research insights.
stakeholder management and trust building
As a user researcher, you make other people more successful. By making their problem your problem, you are the most empathetic person in the room. Building trust, asking the right questions at the right time, managing expectations and turning problems into research projects is the core of your role. I will show you how to do that.
