Leandro is super helpful and instantly felt a connection at the beginning based on his eagerness to listen and give advice! His resources, wisdom, and past experiences gave me insights on what I can do to improve. He is really genuine as a mentor and guided me during the process when applying for my first product design job, and I actually landed one recently, thanks to his help! I'm super grateful!! :)

Chatting with Leandro was great! He did such a good job making me feel welcome and comfortable in the video call. As a new product designer, I was looking to connect with someone with deep experience in design, and Leandro delivered! He had an abundance of helpful tips for communicating with stakeholders and making sure that a design is filled with intent. He was able to draw on his own experiences and examples to help me understand the situations I've been facing in my own work.

I greatly enjoyed talking with Leandro today! He took the time to get to know me and understand what kind of specific industry I was looking to enter, and gave me some really actionable advice based on what he was hearing, specifically on how to stand out to recruiters on Linkedin. Beyond that, he also shared with me his Notion board, which is filled with so much great information with everything ranging from junior UX job boards to UX interviewing tips. Overall, a great session!

My first attempt to try out ADPList through Leandro was a welcoming gift towards the new year. Leandro was careful and insightful with his abundance of experiences and professionalism that clarified my motivation and goals. Conversation with him was a fantastic experience!
