There is an exciting opportunity waiting for you! The Diederich College of Communication has been working with our colleagues in the Marquette University Alumni Association to develop a pilot “distance” mentoring program that will kick off next month. You can apply for consideration to be selected as a student mentee, which means that you would be matched with a mentor during this school year (September-April).
This year, the program is being established as a pilot and will include a small number of students/mentees. We want to see what we learn, how this process evolves, refine it and potentially grow it next year. (This pilot will run concurrent with our already successful mentor program that matches students with Milwaukee-area communication alumni.) And, like our current mentor program, students will be matched with an alumnus who is working in your field of interest. What sets this pilot apart is that students will be paired with alumni across the country.
Our goal is to match students with alumni working in their home states or working in states students would like to re-locate to after graduation.
We have confirmed mentors on board to participate from a variety of professional areas: entertainment and performing arts, digital media and broadcast communication, sports journalism, strategic communication and digital sales.
