About this Session

Having a good portfolio on hand is key for any designer in the job market. Even if you're not looking for a new position right now, having an impressive portfolio that presenty your experience to future potential employers is always good to have.

In this session, a mentor with design and hiring experience will go over your portfolio and give you actionable points on how to improve it. You will be able to follow along and make these changes right away, hopefully leaving you with a top-notch portfolio at the end of the sessions.

On top of 12 years of Product Design experience, I also have 10+ years of experience hiring people at businesses ranging from early-stage startups to multibillion-dollar unicorns. This background, paired with my experience as a copywriter, allows me to add considerable value for those looking to validate and/or improve their portfolio.

Sessions are split into three parts.

1. A quick 2-5 minute overview where you share which types of jobs/companies you are applying to and/or relevant goals.

2. I review and share high-level feedback, followed by ranking the issues in order of priority/importance.

3. I then share clear actionable feedback/suggestions on how to improve the content and/or design.

In every session I have with Essa, I can see how passionate he is about design, problem-solving, and helping people. This, coupled with his non-judgmental approach and insightful guidance, makes him an exceptional mentor. It’s clear that he has extensive knowledge and experience in the field of design, but what also sets him apart is his genuine care for his mentees. He invests considerable time and effort into understanding how you work as an individual and heavily considers that in the way he mentors you. He is very intelligent, kind, and helpful, and I’m very glad to have him as my mentor.

Essa is an incredible mentor who has tons of knowledge about ADHD and neurodivergence in general. From the jump it was clear that Essa loves helping people. His kind, empathetic and non-judgmental approach makes it easy to open up and have meaningful conversations. Navigating my ADHD has been a hard journey, but the calls with Essa have taught me a lot, and helped me feel validated. He’s given me a lens through which I can view myself in a compassionate way and start to understand how I can start to improve my life. Essa takes great care in listening to the problems you’re facing and works with you to identify some possible root causes. He doesn’t force explanations or give presumptuous advice. Instead, he helps you arrive at your own conclusion by offering an alternative point of view. I highly recommend Essa as a mentor and would encourage anyone to book a couple of sessions and give it a proper go. There’s tons of value to be found here!

It's a great experience working with Essa. He is a attentive listener and pays attention to details. His response is tailered to your end goal and helps you to over come that blockage. Have no doubts I recommend working with Essa,

Essa has many positives like his passion and experience, but what stands out the most is that he tries to understand what makes you tick, then he adapts his approach. He understands that everybody has strengths and weaknesses so he is very non-judgmental and easy to talk to. He is also interesting so a call really goes by fast, and if you have spare time he generously spends more of his. As a teacher myself, I can recognize his talents of teaching and mentoring which is why I wholeheartedly recommend him.
