Los Angeles Alumni Mentor and Network Program
The Marquette Entertainment & Communications Alumni (MECA) provides networking and mentor support to MU alumni working in the entertainment, communications and new media business sectors of Southern California. In addition to social networking events, MECA also hosts a committee of engaged and established alumni who volunteer to serve as mentors to new Marquette grads looking to pursue their career goals in Los Angeles. Each mentor on the committee represents a specific job discipline and will serve as a resource for new grads in the following manner:
- By offering support, guidance and motivation when it comes time to take a giant step in a new direction after graduation
- By helping grads decide what directions to pursue in a career and how to overcome obstacles
- By sharing professional contacts & stories and building a personal relationships with fellow MU alum
- By teaching what we've learned and share these lessons to better prepare young MU professionals for their own careers
- By becoming a point of connection between Marquette and the City of Los Angeles
Fill out this form if you wish to reach out to any of the listed Los Angeles based Marquette graduates. The time is now to explore your future goals and make your career dreams a reality.
