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. Previous to my transition into the UX industry, I studied Architecture at Cornell University.

I have mentored 40+ people (via Mentorcruise, Design Lab, ADP List, Architechies, etc) through career transitions, interviewing skills, and more. Whether you are a student, UX bootcamp graduate, career switcher, or new 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 help give guidance on ways you can stand out as a competitive candidate.

As someone who has received multiple 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 proven 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!

Really helpful introduction, and provided advice for steps to take before we start the mentorship to ensure that I get the most out of working with Rina. Was really kind, approachable and knowledgeable.
