What's Better than a College Degree? Mentorship.

According to the 2016 Stack Overflow survey of over 56,000 coders, mentorship programs correlate with higher pay than a college degree. I’ve always suggested that students find a good mentor, but with that kind of data-backed endorsement, I think we need to do a little more.

I’m an application consultant for companies ranging from hot startups to fortune 500 giants. I’m the author of “Programming JavaScript Applications” (O’Reilly), and contributor to software experiences for Adobe Systems , Zumba Fitness , The Wall Street Journal , ESPN , BBC , and top recording artists including Usher , Frank Ocean , Metallica , and many more.

I’ve always felt a strong need to give back. A couple years ago, we decided to build EricElliottJS.com and teach developers online. Around the same time, we started the “JavaScript Scene” blog. Today, our blog posts attract hundreds of thousands of views per month.

I speak at conferences around the world, and students pay hundreds of dollars to attend my master class workshops in a classroom environment packed with other students.

I’m partnered with JS Cheerleader, tech agent extraordinaire. She’s my agent, and she finds professional opportunities for me and counsels me on career goals and strategies. She works with hiring managers from the top tech companies in the business, and through my experience and her connections, I have a really good view of what skills the industry is looking for, and what companies value in potential engineering hires.

Recently, people have been asking if I would consider one-on-one mentorship. Today we’re going to test the waters and see if there’s a demand.

How Will We Meet?

We’ll meet online via Skype, and I’ll direct you to a ton of great materials to study on your own time after the session.

What Will We Talk About?

The strength of mentorship is that we can focus on your individual needs. We’ll talk briefly about your objectives and career goals and from there I can counsel you on technology stacks, concepts to fortify your understanding, we can even dive into an in-depth lesson on a particular topic you’re interested in, or pair programming on a project.

Here are some topics I can really help you understand:
