How Do Mentor Referral Bonuses Work?

We’re always looking to grow and ensure diversity across our mentor team, and we know our current mentor pool is the best resource for finding that great talent. As a mentor, you understand what it takes to succeed working with Designlab students, and that’s why we want to reward you for referring other good people to us. 

As a reminder, here are the things we are looking for in our mentors:

  • A minimum of 4 years experience as a UX/UI designer
  • A passion for UX and product design
  • Deep investment in student outcomes
  • High-quality UX and UI work with deep levels of understanding and insight

Along with the ability to:

  • Use empathy to build connections with students
  • Draw from their own experiences to augment the curriculum
  • Have the right conversations to promote student growth even when this is difficult

Here's how Mentor Referral Bonuses work: 

  • The new mentor MUST let us know they were referred by you in the relevant field in their application to become a mentor
  • New mentors must be accepted as a Designlab mentor, onboard onto the platform, and have their first mentor session with 2 students before the referral bonus is paid.
  • Payouts will take place on the 1st of each month via Paypal (to learn more about payouts contact your Mentor Relationship Manager or the Support team.)

Thank you in advance for your referrals and for helping to grow the Designlab community!
