About

πŸ‘‹ Hi there! I’m Rina, an incoming Senior Product Designer at Meta. Previously, I was a UX designer working on Alexa at Amazon working on consumer domains like communications, device onboarding fitness, and visual UI systems. Previous to my transition into the UX industry, I studied and practiced Architecture, working at international firms.

I have mentored 40+ people (via Mentorcruise, Design Lab, ADP List, Architechies, etc) through career transitions, UX assignments, and more. Whether you are a student, UX bootcamp graduate, career switcher, or seasoned professional, we can work together to come up with a plan specific to your goals. My mentorship style involves active listening, encouragement, and actionable feedback.

As a career switcher, I know how stressful it is to transition your career. While it feels like you're starting over from scratch, there are many ways you can leverage and market your existing skillset. By understanding your unique background, I can give you support and guidance to break into the competitive UX industry and help you to stand out.

As someone who has aced interviews at top tech companies with a 100% interview success rate (Google, Meta, Amazon, Block, Uber, Pinterest, and more), I can also help you break into top tech companies and teach you proven frameworks that work. I was a design interviewer at Amazon and can give you tips on how to best represent yourself to the hiring team in behavioral interviews, portfolio presentations, whiteboards and app critiques.

As your mentor, I will help you with the following:

β†’ Transitioning your career to UX
β†’ Review your Portfolio & CV
β†’ Guide you through the UX Interview process
β†’ Prepare you for whiteboards (+framework demo)
β†’ Prepare you for app critiques (+framework demo)
β†’ Mock UX Interviews (behavioral, whiteboard, app critique, presentations and more)
β†’ Break into a top tech company

Ultimately, the time we set aside is for you, we can tailor our meetings to what is helpful for you at any given time.

 Can’t wait to meet!
