As a recent graduate, I went on Linkedin to seek career advice and mentorship. Therefore, I invited my friend as well as a product designer, Fangzheng Zhu, to start this 4-week exploration with me. Examining the feature through the lenses of desirability, viability, and feasibility, we started with questions like: Are we solving the right pain point? Are we strengthen the foundation of the company and the competitive advantage of the business? Are we contributing to long-term growth? Besides, based on the strong connection analysis ability Linkedin already have, implicit and explicit user input through mentorship feature can be fed to machine learning with more nuances.

Mariana Prieto is a social innovator in the purest sense of the term. I hope that people respond to my voice and thinking in my work. Can students from design schools try to come up with ideas to help address homelessness in the city? The results were recently unveiled at the Main Museum downtown. The three full-scale prototypes and a number of miniature models were the work of students completing a two-term studio project with James Meraz, a professor of environmental design at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena.
They said the goal is to address some of the most common misconceptions about immigration. As officials scramble to approve sites for the others, students at the ArtCenter College of Design have been rethinking how future pop-up developments might look.

How are mentors selected, screened and trained? Potential mentors are required to attend a three-hour training and orientation session, where they receive intensive training, participate in role playing and are fingerprinted. Personal and professional references must also be provided by the prospective mentor. Mentors are encouraged to meet with the program coordinators to ensure appropriate pairings. What is the time commitment?
Once matched, the mentor is expected to make a time commitment of meeting with the student one hour each week or two hours bi-weekly, for a total of four hours a month. The mentor is also asked to make a year-long commitment to the program and to participate in an evaluation process. These requirements are important to ensuring the consistency and continuity that make for a successful mentor-mentee relationship. Every week or every other week, mentors meet with their students after school, during or after work.
Companies are encouraged to be flexible in allowing their employees to participate in this program and are encouraged to allow pairs to meet during regular office hours at the job site.
