IxDA Toronto Speed Mentoring!
Thursday, August 6, 2009 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
IxDA Toronto Mentoring Meetup – August 6th at the Rhino
Looking for UX veteran who can give you advice? Want to expand your network by taking on a mentee?
IxDA Toronto is holding its first Mentoring Meetup on August 6th at the Rhino. It’s like speed dating, but for UX professionals.
Chat with several potential matches and pursue a mentoring relationship with the mentor/mentee who seems like the best fit. Each potential mentor and mentee will have a short conversation and then switch so that you get a chance to talk to everybody. If you don't meet the right person, that's okay, just have a good time talking to great people.
For this event to happen we need a minimum number of mentors and mentees! For the night, please pick which category you're in--in other words, please don't register as both a mentor AND a mentee. This doesn't mean you can't be a mentor or get a mentor at some point, it's just to make the event work.
Mentors: Expand your network, learn by teaching, help build the next generation of great designers!
Mentees: Get valuable advice from seasoned professionals, build your network, find somebody to guide your through entering a new career
Spaces are limited, sign up soon and spread the word.
