WMPRSA MENTOR HUB MIXER | January 22, 2013 | Haworth Interphase at MoDiv – Downtown GR | 5:15pm – 6:30pm
The West Michigan Public Relations Society of America is starting a program called, Mentor Hub for business professionals and students from local colleges and universities to offer career counsel, knowledge, and wisdom to those juniors and seniors looking to make their career in communications.
January 22, 2013 will kick-off with an event that will entertain a unique start to pairing mentors and mentees. This event will allow potential mentors and mentees to be acquainted before being paired after the event. Mentors do not need to be members of WMPRSA, but must work in the communications field in order to participate.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
The night will start with networking, and quickly move on to a ‘bio auction’ where mentors will be introduced in game show-style with information from their resume, including current and past professional experiences, and hobbies. We might just say, “Come on down!”
From there, a speed dating set-up will allow mentors and mentees to have 1-2 minutes of face-time where they can become more acquainted.
Finally, mentees will have the opportunity to write down three mentor names they would choose to have as a mentor, descending in priority.
RSVP Jen Gilman, firstname.lastname@example.org Add “Mentor Hub Mixer” in the subject line.
COST Free. Light Hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be provided.
