About the Programme

Interested in Games User Research and User Experience? Just getting started and want a guiding hand? Or are you an industry pro who wants to help others? The GRUX-SIG Mentoring Programme may be for you!


About the mentor programme

A Mentor is someone who is already experienced in the Games industry, who can help with advice, learning opportunities and help you develop.

In this initial launch of the programme, we’ve formed a panel of experienced professionals who are happy to be contacted for 1:1 mentoring relationships, or just for individual questions.

This is a great opportunity to get support, advice, feedback or answer any specific questions you have about Games User Research and Experience.

Although the mentoring programme can involve career advice, it is not a shortcut to a job. Please also keep in mind that mentors have volunteered to help, but will not be available 24/7 and sometimes have other demands on their time.
