Mentorship

I didn’t get to where I am in my life and career on my own. I have a ton of respect and admiration for the folks who’ve helped and mentored me along the way. Molly Holzschlag took me under her wing and taught me so much about public speaking and selflessly working for a better Web. Jeffrey Zeldman made a place for me at A List Apart, heavily influenced my writing, invited me onto his team at Happy Cog, and has both supported and promoted my work for well over a decade now. Jeremy Keith collaborated with me early on and has provided invaluable guidance to me over the years. And these are but a few of the dozens upon dozens of folks I owe my career to and, if I’m being honest, helped me discover my passion.

Recognizing all of this, I’ve made a concerted effort to “pay it forward” by finding opportunities for others to hone their craft and improve as professionals. In some cases it’s been recommending them as conference speakers, introducing them to publishers, recommending them for jobs, asking them to collaborate on projects, or simply providing advice and guidance for their careers or their companies. To date, most of these efforts have been one-offs. For a while now I’ve been wanting to work more intensely with one person, but I needed to get settled into my relatively new role at Microsoft (as well as my new role as a father) first.

I’m ready now.

I am looking for someone to mentor in 2017. If you’re interested in working with me throughout the year, I’m accepting “applications” for the slot through the end of January. As of right now, I’m only comfortable committing to one mentee for 2017, but once I see how it’s going, I may opt to take on additional mentees in the future.

What are you looking for in a mentee?

To me, it doesn’t matter to me where you are in your career… no matter how long we’ve been doing something, there’s always room for improvement. When I think about my ideal mentee, I’m looking for someone who’s passionate about the Web and who I think I can do some good for. I don’t care how young or old you are or how long you’ve worked on the Web. I firmly believe we can always benefit from a mentorship.

Similarly, it doesn’t matter to me where you live nor does it matter to me how good your English is (though it’s probably better than you give yourself credit for). If you happen to be local to the Southeastern U.S. or somewhere I’m traveling over the next year, we’ll definitely spend some time getting together in person, but that is by no means a requirement. Email… Skype… Hangouts… I’m happy to work with you no matter where you are.

How do I apply?

In order to apply, all I ask is that you write a public post somewhere on the Web that discusses why you love the Web, where you’re at in your career, and what your goals are for the coming year. I’m not looking for a particular length or anything, just trying to get a sense of you, your passions, and your interests.

Once you’ve done that, use this site’s contact form to send me the link, along with a brief write-up as to why you’d like me to mentor you. In particular I’m interested to hear where our passions overlap and how you think I can help you. I want to make sure we are a good fit. And be honest… if you want me as a mentor because of the connections I have, say that; I appreciate honesty.

Anyway, that’s it. No big hoops to jump through. I’ll keep the lines open through Tuesday, January 31st in whatever your local timezone is. I look forward to getting to know you and taking one of you under my wing this year.

After a great deal of consideration, however, I chose not one, but two folks I really wanted to work with this year: <a href=\"https://twitter.com/amberleyjohanna\">Amberley Romo</a> and <a href=\"https://twitter.com/mmatuzo\">Manuel Matuzović</a>.</p><p>I’ve been working with the two of them for a few months now and wanted to highlight a bit about who they are and what we are working on.</p><h2>Amberley Romo</h2><p><a href=\"http://amberley.me/2017/01/17/the-road-so-far-pt-ii/\">Amberley’s story</a> really resonated with me. She is heavily invested in the Web as a tool for good. A force capable of bringing more equity to this world.</p><blockquote><p>Growing up with a nonverbal sibling with intellectual and developmental disabilities was one of the single most formative experiences of my life. I find myself very lucky to have been born when I was, to enjoy growing up without being oversaturated with technology, but witnessing and participating in the periods of growth that I have. One of the ways I personally benchmark that progress is in the evolution of the technology my sister used to communicate.</p></blockquote><p>Over the last few years, Amberley has performed in a number of different roles in and around the Web, but in the last year she’s been getting more serious about her career as a web developer. She is incredibly motivated and enrolled herself in a <a href=\"http://www.makersquare.com/\">3-month, full-time development accelerator</a> to deepen her understanding of software development. And in my discussion with her, it’s clear the force is strong with this one.</p><p>Much of my work with Amberley has, thus far, been centered around career development. We’ve spent a lot of time discussing what it’s like to work for smaller companies and large corporations and the benefits and frustrations inherent in each.</p><p>Outside of her day job, we’ve discussed opportunities for her to channel her talent into worthwhile open source projects. It was kismet that just as we started discussing this, I received an email from <a href=\"https://github.com/shayc\">Shay Cojocaru</a>, a front-end dev at The Center for Educational Technology (CET) in Israel. He introduced me to a project he was working on: <a href=\"https://shayc.github.io/cboard/\">CBoard</a>.

I had the great privilege of <a href=\"https://www.aaron-gustafson.com/notebook/my-2017-mentees/\">working with two incredibly talented people</a>—<a href=\"https://amberley.blog/\">Amberley Romo</a> and <a href=\"http://www.matuzo.at/\">Manuel Matuzović</a>—for a little over a year and enjoyed the hell out of the experience.</p>\n\n<p>I had hoped to kick off a new mentorship session in January, but (as often happens) life got in the way. Now that I’m settled into a new city and a new routine, I’m itching to get things going again. And so I ask: How can I help you develop or further your career on the web?</p>\n\n\n\n<h2>What am I looking for in a mentee?</h2>\n\n<p>Whether you aspire to work on the web or you’re a veteran of the browser wars, if you think you could benefit from mentorship, I’d like to help. My ideal mentee is someone who’s passionate about the web and is—perhaps most of all—someone who I believe I can help.</p>\n\n<p>To that end, my skills and knowledge will probably be most helpful to people interested in any or all of the these:</p>\n\n<ul>\n  <li>writing,</li>\n  <li>speaking,</li>\n  <li>designing/developing on the front end (but not with frameworks),</li>\n  <li>improving their UX skills,</li>\n  <li>championing accessibility, and</li>\n  <li>developing progressive web apps.</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>I’ve got scads of other interests and skills too, but those are probably the ones I’m most confident I can help with.</p>\n\n<p>You don’t need to live near me or even in the same hemisphere. If you happen to be local to the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. or live <a href=\"https://www.aaron-gustafson.com/speaking-engagements/\">somewhere that I’m traveling to over the next year</a>, we’ll definitely meet in person, but that’s by no means a requirement. I’m based in the Pacific time zone (Seattle, Washington), but I’ll do my best to coordinate a regular time for us to chat that won’t require you hopping on Skype at two in the morning (unless that’s your thing). Email… Skype… Hangouts… I’m happy to work however you’re comfortable.</p>\n\n<p>I’m afraid I don’t speak any languages other than English,<a href=\"#fn:1\">1</a> so that artificially restricts the pool of folks I can work with, but don’t worry if you don’t think your English is great. Honestly, it’s probably better than you give yourself credit for. It’s also 100% guaranteed to be better than my attempts at speaking pretty much any language other than English.</p>\n\n<h2>Who should apply?</h2>\n\n<p>Much of my work over the past twenty-plus years has been concentrated in the areas of accessibility and, more broadly, inclusive design. To create a web that can go anywhere and work for anyone, we need a diverse group of people making it happen. Sadly, our industry has a difficult time recruiting, developing, and, most importantly, retaining a diverse workforce. Given the egalitarian ideals that the web was founded on, that’s a travesty.</p>\n\n<p>I want to see more diverse faces working on the web, speaking at conferences, writing articles, and getting promoted into leadership positions in design, UX, and development. And so this year I’m doing things a little differently: I will only be taking applications from folks who self-identify as part of an underrepresented group. Out of respect for your privacy, I’m not requiring that you label yourself in any particular way, but I do ask that you <a href=\"https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/dec/27/check-your-privilege-racism-sexism-education-income\">check your privilege</a> and refrain from applying if you’re part of a group that is already heavily represented in our industry (such as white cis males).</p>\n\n<h2>What’s the application process?</h2>\n\n<p>Like last year, the application process is not meant to be challenging or time-consuming. I’d like you to write a public post somewhere on the web—such as on your blog, Medium, Twitter, or Mastodon—that discusses why you love the Web, what you love about working on it (or aspire to work on), and what your goals are for the coming year of your career. I’m not looking for any particular length; I’m trying to get a sense of you, your passion, and where your interests lie. I love seeing people publicly gush about why they love the web, but, if you’re more of a private person, you can write it in a non-public document stored somewhere on the web that you can share with me (such as on DraftIn, Google Drive, OneDrive, or Dropbox).</p>\n\n<p>Once you’ve done that, use <a href=\"https://www.aaron-gustafson.com/contact/\">this site’s contact form</a> to send me the link, along with a brief note about why you’d like me as a mentor. Again, I’m not looking for any particular length, but I would appreciate it if you you could touch on where our passions overlap and how you think I can help. I want to make sure we’re a good fit. And please be honest… if you want me as a mentor because of the connections I have, say that—I appreciate honesty.</p>\n\n<p>Anyway, that’s it. No big hoops to jump through. If that feels like too much writing and you’d rather speak to me in real-time, please drop me a line and say as much. I’d be happy to set up a time to chat.</p>\n\n<h2>Can you nominate someone?</h2>\n\n<p>If you know someone who you think would be a good fit for this, <em>please nominate them</em>!

The easiest (but most public) way is to <a href=\"https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=Hey+@aarongustafson+I%27d+like+to+nominate+YOUR_FRIENDS_HANDLE+for+your+mentorship\">@-message us both on Twitter</a>.

I’m based in the Pacific time zone (Seattle, Washington), but I’ll do my best to coordinate a regular time for us to chat that won’t require you hopping on Skype at two in the morning (unless that’s your thing). Email… Skype… Hangouts… I’m happy to work however you’re comfortable.\n\nI’m afraid I don’t speak any languages other than English,1 so that artificially restricts the pool of folks I can work with, but don’t worry if you don’t think your English is great. Honestly, it’s probably better than you give yourself credit for. It’s also 100% guaranteed to be better than my attempts at speaking pretty much any language other than English.\n\nWho should apply?\n\nMuch of my work over the past twenty-plus years has been concentrated in the areas of accessibility and, more broadly, inclusive design. To create a web that can go anywhere and work for anyone, we need a diverse group of people making it happen. Sadly, our industry has a difficult time recruiting, developing, and, most importantly, retaining a diverse workforce. Given the egalitarian ideals that the web was founded on, that’s a travesty.\n\nI want to see more diverse faces working on the web, speaking at conferences, writing articles, and getting promoted into leadership positions in design, UX, and development. And so this year I’m doing things a little differently: I will only be taking applications from folks who self-identify as part of an underrepresented group. Out of respect for your privacy, I’m not requiring that you label yourself in any particular way, but I do ask that you check your privilege and refrain from applying if you’re part of a group that is already heavily represented in our industry (such as white cis males).\n\nWhat’s the application process?\n\nLike last year, the application process is not meant to be challenging or time-consuming. I’d like you to write a public post somewhere on the web—such as on your blog, Medium, Twitter, or Mastodon—that discusses why you love the Web, what you love about working on it (or aspire to work on), and what your goals are for the coming year of your career. I’m not looking for any particular length; I’m trying to get a sense of you, your passion, and where your interests lie. I love seeing people publicly gush about why they love the web, but, if you’re more of a private person, you can write it in a non-public document stored somewhere on the web that you can share with me (such as on DraftIn, Google Drive, OneDrive, or Dropbox).\n\nOnce you’ve done that, use this site’s contact form to send me the link, along with a brief note about why you’d like me as a mentor. Again, I’m not looking for any particular length, but I would appreciate it if you you could touch on where our passions overlap and how you think I can help. I want to make sure we’re a good fit. And please be honest… if you want me as a mentor because of the connections I have, say that—I appreciate honesty.\n\nAnyway, that’s it. No big hoops to jump through. If that feels like too much writing and you’d rather speak to me in real-time, please drop me a line and say as much. I’d be happy to set up a time to chat.\n\nCan you nominate someone?\n\nIf you know someone who you think would be a good fit for this, please nominate them! All I ask is that you introduce us with some context. The easiest (but most public) way is to @-message us both on Twitter. If you’d rather keep it private, you can kick off a DM thread with us if your nominee is on Twitter too (my DMs are open) or start the conversation by dropping me a note through the contact form on this site or sending me a message on any of the various platforms I frequent (Facebook, LinkedIn, and so on).\n\nI look forward to working with you (or your friend)!\n\nI’ll keep the lines open through Tuesday, 30 September 2018 in whatever your local timezone is. I met a ton of amazing folks last year through this process and got to work with two outstanding human beings. I truly look forward to getting to know you and taking one or two of you under my wing.\n\n  \n    \n      In hindsight, studying Latin in high school wasn’t the best choice. Oh well. ↩"},"mention-of":"https://www.aaron-gustafson.com/notebook/looking-for-a-mentor/","wm-property":"mention-of","wm-private":false},{"type":"entry","author":{"type":"card","name":"","photo":"","url":""},"url":"https://www.cheapvisums.nl/comments/feed/","published":null,"wm-received":"2019-03-31T02:50:59Z","wm-id":603177,"wm-source":"https://www.cheapvisums.nl/comments/feed/","wm-target":"https://www.aaron-gustafson.com/notebook/looking-for-a-mentor/","mention-of":"https://www.aaron-gustafson.com/notebook/looking-for-a-mentor/","wm-property":"mention-of","wm-private":false}]
