I loved reading this and found the piece on communication and how you seek mentorship really insightful. I never thought of reaching out to my boss for help with connections! Totally going to give it a shot. Also, I love that you focus on making your communities small. There's a place for large communities but we also need small ones. I personally love small communities. I feel safer, also like I'd be heard and I don't have to strive to shout above the rest to get noticed when I'm a part of smaller communities. It's also usually more intimate and I like that. Thank you @juliedkim and @jessicali

So grateful that you found this helpful! And yep, I really love smaller communities because I'm an introvert, and it's rather disadvantageous for introverts to constantly try to adjust to environments that we don't feel comfortable in! Also smaller groups make for deeper and more intimate conversations. :)

Thank you for posting this! I’ve been noticing a few junior product designer roles I’d love to apply for. This post gave me the extra nudge I needed.
