In this competitive, ever-changing PR environment students can truly benefit by connecting with a professional to share experience and enthusiasm for the industry. This is your chance to give back to the profession by mentoring a graduating senior during their last semester.
The mentor program can be tailored to each pair’s needs, and can include anything from resume and cover letter critiques to internship discussions and job shadowing. You can meet for coffee, invite your “mentee” to a WMPRSA luncheon or mixer, or connect on social networks.
If you’re interested in participating please send your contact information and past/present PR specialties to Amy Sawade at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mentor matchup is for the winter 2011 semester, February through April.
