About

👋 Hi there! I’m Rina, a 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. Before transitioning into UX, I studied Architecture at Cornell University.

I have mentored 40+ people (via Mentorcruise, Design Lab, ADP List, etc) through career transitions, interviewing skills, and receiving top offers at Google, Meta, Wealthsimple, and more.

Whether you are a student, UX bootcamp graduate, career switcher, or new professional, we'll 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 guidance on ways you can stand out.

As someone who has received offers at top tech companies (Google, Meta, Amazon, Uber, Pinterest, Cashapp, Square, Snap and more), I can help you break into top tech companies and teach you frameworks that work. I have 2+ years of experience as a screener and design interviewer, I 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:

→ Transition your career to UX
→ Review your Portfolio & CV
→ Guide you through the UX Interview process
→ Prepare you for whiteboards/app critiques
→ Understand salary & market expectations
→ Mock UX Interviews
→ 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!

Rina is the best mentor I've ever had. She really helped me grow as a designer and I can't recommend her enough. Rina provided great feedback and suggestions in all of our engagements and, most importantly, she truly cares about her mentees. Thanks, Rina!

I really liked Rina's mentoring sessions. She provided in-depth feedback on all the materials I presented and worked with me hands-on to achieve the best possible outcome. Her insights also helped me gain a better understanding about the field and how I should prepare for the future. A very friendly and empathetic mentor- Would love to work with her again!
