About the Author
He's based in Sydney, Australia and in 2012, started the blog GiantThinkers.com (now also a podcast) which helps thousands of design students and graduates be employed. Ram has since been featured in Communication Arts, HOW magazine, Herman Miller, deFrost*, AIGA.org and Apple.
Plus, CreativeLive; the world's largest live streaming education website, personally invited Ram to deliver two classes in San Francisco. He delivered those classes after his three-month, 22 city, USA speaking tour over November 2014 to January 2015 and engaged with over 10,000 people.
With 12 years experience working for globally renowned agencies including Ogilvy & Mather, DDB and McCann Worldgroup on clients including Audi, McDonald's, Qantas, Coca-Cola, Google and The Louis Vuitton Group, he's able to give back to the industry which has given him avalanches in return.
Ram is regarded as a world leading career expert for emerging designers. The infectious mix of his hyper-practical thinking, relevant approaches and enormous drive has seen students transition from education to working in the real world at a rapid rate.

This book isn't just for designers; it's for anyone looking to find a mentor.
I got a copy of this book in AIGA while Ram was on the USA tour.
Simply resumed the book is great, short chapters (easy to read), estimated times of reading and completing by each section.
I like that the steps include space to write in the book and checklist, that's about as any book can hold you accountable for your actions.
What surprised me about this book is that the first 6 steps has everything to do with YOU. Make a promise to your self. Who are you? What you want? Why you want it? What's preventing you from getting it? How can you overcome it?
Very practical book, it guides you through each step. For the listeners there is a audiobook version in the authors website.
For the people that understand that having a mentor is great, this book is a great tool.
I am already all too well aware of the importance of having mentors to move forward in my career. It seems that this book is helping me to focus on the right mentor for my needs and how to realize that.
Think of this as a workbook and it won't work if all you do is read it. You have to do the exercises.
Through Ram's guidance, I have discovered and begun to develop relationships with my mentors.
This book will inspire, and ignite that little fire within.
A tell it like it is, with no sugar coating... Ram explains very clearly through his own personal EXPERIENCE of how to achieve the goals as a designer, such things as finding a mentor, what steps that can be taken to get where you want to be.
Thank you Ram for lighting a path for others.
Highly Recommend for reading and learning.
Whether you are a budding designer or work in other fields, the benefits of having a mentor could not be understated.
In the competitive world we find ourselves in, having an edge is key. But how to go about asking and finding the right mentor can be a daunting prospect.
This book sheds light on the whole process and sets you on the right path with proven idea's Ram has used himself.
