I had an excellent experience working with Corbet, and I highly recommend her as a coach for anyone seeking guidance in their UX Research job search or career development. One thing that stood out to me was how Corbet and I were able to communicate freely about how we worked together. We discussed whether coaching or mentoring was better suited to my needs at any given time, which made the experience more personalized and effective. Corbet is kind, patient, and wise, and her expertise as a UX Research leader was instrumental in my career development. In my job search she helped me identify roles that matched my skills and interests, understand how to best position myself to appeal to the recruiter and hiring manager, and prepared me for the interview. Additionally, in my career development, she guided me on learning specific skills, particularly stakeholder management, such as setting expectations and building thought leadership, as well as managing up. Overall, working with Corbet was an invaluable experience that helped me clarify my goals and make progress in my career.

Corbet is a very helpful mentor. She always comes very well prepared to our sessions and on top of answering all my questions and explaining all the UX research topic I wanted to cover very well. She also recommends books and shared articles with me which helps with the learning experience :)
