IxDASydney Mentoring, 2020 Term 2
August 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – August 28, 2020 @ 5:00 pm AEST
IxDA Sydney is proud to have successfully run the Design Mentoring program since 2012, providing opportunities for design professionals at all levels to learn from each other.
The program runs in two terms per year. This second term will run from September to December 2020.
ONE-ON-ONE MENTORING 2020:
This application is specifically for Term 2, one-on-one mentoring. Due to CoVid19, the session will run most likely run fully remotely rather than face-to-face.
- 12 Aug 2020 – Applications open
- 28 Aug 2020 – Applications close
- 7 Sep 2020 – Program starts
- 7 Dec 2020 – Program ends
The mentoring facilitation team from IxDA will review all applications and work on the matching based on survey responses, resumes, and professional experience/goals. We will contact you to let you know whether you. have been matched by September 7th.
To get the most out of the mentorship, we recommend that you aim to meet (online) with each other at least once a fortnight. If you know you’ll be away or will have a very busy work schedule between September and December, it is best to wait and apply for a future term where can commit enough time to meet, work on goals, and get real value out of the program.
There are two application forms, one for people who want to mentor someone, and a different one if you want to be mentored. Bear in mind, if you are a “middle” or “senior” practitioner, you may be interested in mentoring a junior / graduate, and be mentored by a Lead / Manager at the same time, which isn’t a bad idea if you have capacity for it.
If you have any questions, please contact the Mentoring Team directly.
