About the Programme

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

 

About the mentor programme

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

In this initial launch of the programme, we’ve formed a panel of experienced researchers 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.

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.

Mentoring is very rewarding, allows you to reflect upon and develop your own skills, helps the Games User Research community, and is great for personal development.
