Get an unfair advantage in your UX career
Has it been
weeks months since you’ve made real progress in your UX career?
If you feel stuck in your journey into a UX career, you’re not alone. Making the transition into any new field is hard, and the complex world of UX is no exception. I spent months spinning my wheels trying to figure it out on my own as a business analyst trying to switch into UX.
But I was lucky enough to access the right mentors and job search strategies along the way. All the lessons I learned from switching careers – and teaching thousands of others to do it through UXBeginner.com – are now distilled into a 1-on-1 coaching program.
With my guidance, you’ll learn the strategies that my mentees have used to hack the UX job market. Like how to…

How does UX coaching work?
Unlike other UX mentorship programs with minimal support, we’ll do hands-on work with the non-negotiable factors that affect your employability: resume, portfolio development, interview prep and personal branding.
Choose from 3 coaching “tracks” that range from short, intense engagements to deep collaboration: Sprint, Relay and Marathon.
Sprint (single session)
Use this laser-focused, 1 hour workshop to work on your biggest UX career pain point. Perfect for portfolio & resume reviews. End the session with a handy career prioritization checklist.
Relay (4 sessions)
Pick one: complete one portfolio case study, 1-on-1 prep for UX interviews, redesign application materials like UX resumes & cover letters
Marathon (8 sessions)
Includes all: redesign your resume, complete your entire UX portfolio (2-3 projects), use networking strategies to win more job & freelance leads, and elevate your UX interview skills.
Why these names? I used to run track & field in high school ;)

Frequently asked questions
Does joining my coaching program guarantee that you get hired?
No, there are no such guarantees because getting a job depends uniquely on a mentee’s external (job market & location) and internal (skill level, experience) factors. The early part of my coaching program is to help you identify these factors.
A critical piece of getting UX coaching is learning the meta-skills of finding a job. This is a skill you’ll use for every new job in the future. Picking up specialized knowledge like how to network, finding a new job and negotiating your salary will have a lasting impact on the rest of your career.
- Those who expect others to do the work and get a UX job for them. This program requires your energy, focus and hustle.
- Students who’ve had zero exposure to UX – meaning you haven’t taken a course, nor read a UX book yet
- You have a lot of debt or have trouble paying bills. Take care of yourself first :)
My goal with every mentee is to return a net positive in your investment by focusing on the pillars that help you get hired as a UX professional: finish your portfolio, interviewing better, landing a job, and winning more freelance work.
My job coaching program is not for those looking for a quick fix without work, nor those who don’t see coaching as a direct investment in their career. No hard feelings – I’m not for everyone, nor should it be.
Isn’t it time to stop second-guessing yourself?
I’ve hired coaches to help me improve aspects of my life from business to public speaking. And the results were always many times the investment – not only because I reached my goals faster, but because a good coach relieved the pain of second guessing myself.
If you’re feeling lost in your UX career, you recognize that there’s a real cost to constantly switching tasks… especially when it comes to putting together your portfolio, job hunting and growing your personal brand. That’s why you should leverage the experience of an expert, so that you avoid pitfalls and save yourself from making costly decisions.
My mentees find that most of the value from our coaching comes from a sense of structure & clarity on what to do. I’ll firmly guide you away from time-wasting activities, and help you double down on your strengths and identify the opportunities worth chasing.
How do I as a coach give you this clarity? Your intuition probably tells you that what actually gets you results is combining knowledge with action. That’s why I’ve built direction and accountability into my UX coaching program:
There’s too much information and differing points of view on the internet. Cut through the noise with a custom-tailored career roadmap. Leverage the experience of a mentor who reviews hundreds of UX resumes and portfolios.
Doing work on yourself can be aimless when there’s no clear deadline, no real consequences. That’s why it takes forever to complete personal portfolios and solo projects. With a coach, you get built-in accountability that helps you translate information into action.
So does coaching make sense for you? If you’re willing to bear the cost of figuring things out by yourself (like I did), respect. I advise all potential mentees to do their research, and consider free resources like the UXBeginner blog and Tuesday UX Trainer. I also offer lower-cost courses like UNBOX: The Wireframing Course or The Ultimate UX Portfolio Course.
If it’s been months since you’ve made real progress in your UX career, coaching can be the best investment you make this year.
