8th Annual Mentor Matchup Kickoff Event


The learning curve is steep, the key commands are complex, the page count is long; that is why you are here.

Mentor Matchup is a three-month mentoring program designed to cultivate the career growth and professional success of emerging designers. Mentors and mentees will come together and work hand-in-hand to identify the mentee’s career goals and aspirations. Then, over the next three months, mentors will provide advice and guidance as they show their mentees the ropes.

Potential Mentees: (Students or anyone with less than 1.5 years working experience, priority given to first time participants)

Do you wish you had some insight into what design professionals think of your work? Ever wonder what a “real” design firm looks like? Are you curious what you’ll actually be doing when you graduate? How do projects come to life? Is it magic?

Potential Mentors:
Do you remember all the mistakes you made when you first graduated? Ever wish you were back in design school and you had a semester to complete your projects? Do you want to share with college students/recent graduates what the real world is like?

Now accepting applications for mentors (Professionals) and mentees (Student Members and Associate Members) for Fall 2017-2018. Once mentors and mentees have applied, our board will match you based on your interests and desired career path. At this kickoff event, you’ll meet your mentor/mentee, hear great ideas for how to start your partnership and the specifics of the program itself. Attendance is mandatory.
