One-on-one mentor-led design programs to help you

After you’ve started learning design, what next? Wherever you are in your design journey, RookieUp pairs you with the perfect UX/UI or Visual Design mentor to help you accomplish your goals and launch your career.

Trying to launch your design career? You don’t have to do it alone.

There are a lot of ways to learn design skills online, but most courses end right after teaching the fundamentals, leaving you all alone for the most difficult part — building an amazing portfolio and actually getting a job.

Our 1-on-1 mentor programs pair you with the perfect design mentor who will help you achieve your career goals, wherever you are in your design journey.

The perfect program for you

Learning

If you’re just starting to learn design and aren’t enrolled in an expensive bootcamp, learning the skills you need to get a job all on your own can feel overwhelming. Not anymore. We’ll pair you with the perfect mentor to help you:

  • Learn the design process
  • Build your first projects
  • Understand your career options
  • Create (and stick to) a learning action plan

Building

Once you’ve learned the basics, what next? Most design courses end here, leaving you alone to practice your skills, build up a portfolio, and find a job. We’ll pair you with the perfect mentor (and recruiter team) who will help you:

  • Improve your skills
  • Build new portfolio projects
  • Perfect your existing projects
  • Create (and stick to) a career action plan

Launching

After you’ve designed your first few projects, building them into an amazing portfolio and getting job-ready can feel like an impossible task. We’ll pair you with the perfect mentor (and recruiter team) who will help you:

  • Create in-depth case studies
  • Build an incredible portfolio
  • Craft your resume and apply to jobs
  • Interview and launch your career!

Get the mentorship and support you’ve been seeking to launch your design career

RookieUp Mentor Programs are a totally new kind of design education, created for aspiring designers who know what their goals are and don’t want to be forced through a structured curriculum or expensive bootcamp just to be able to work with a mentor.

Our programs come in where most design courses end, and are designed from the ground up to give you the support and guidance you need to hone your skills, build a portfolio, and launch your career. Every program includes…

Your Perfect Mentor

You’ll get to handpick your mentor from a list curated by our team based on your goals, and then work with them 1-on-1 at your own pace.

Flexible and Designed for you

Your own private team

Launching a new career by yourself is hard. With RookieUp, you don’t have to do it alone! Your private mentor, student advisor, and recruiter are there to help with every question.

Community and Resources

You’ll be part of our private Mentor and
Student Slack community where you can ask questions, get feedback, and more. You’ll also get access to our growing library of projects and career resources.
