Frequently asked questions
Many writers are introverts. We wanted to provide a path to support and success that eliminates the awkwardness of reaching out to strangers to ask for help. Because you’re paying your coach, the time is yours to get what you need. Our coaches see it that way, too.
A few more reasons:
- We believe our UX coaches deserve to be fairly compensated for their hard-earned expertise, and we’re thrilled to provide them the opportunity.
- Our coaching sessions are discrete, one-hour sessions focused on a specific topic. Our goal is to provide specific, direct, and actionable feedback to help you succeed in your career.
- Paying for a session actually keeps us – and you – accountable! We are dedicated to providing a quality service that will help your career.
We don’t just allow anyone to sign up and become a coach. We vet everyone, interview them, examine their work experience and portfolio, and make sure they’re qualified in the areas they’re coaching. Plus, every single one of our mentors signs a code of conduct.
You can rest assured, our coaches are professional, expert content designers qualified to guide you in your career.
We don’t anticipate issues, but we’ve got your back. If you’re not happy with your session for any reason, please let us know by reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Filling out a pre-session form allows your coach to enter your 60-minute session knowing all the background and everything they need to know before giving you advice. It’ll make your coaching session even better, because you won’t have to spend half your session getting them up to speed!
No, coaches cannot edit or contribute in any way to a writing exercise from a hiring company. They can support your learning if you have specific questions, guide you on answering interview questions for practice, and offer advice for your career choices.
Getting advice from within your organization is fantastic. It’s also good to get coaching and advice from many different people with different perspectives. Friends, colleagues… anyone who can help!
We think a paid coaching session offers value because it’s good to speak to someone with an outside perspective. Plus, you may not always feel comfortable asking someone in your company or organization questions about future career plans.
We offer coaching scholarships for people who need them.
