MENTOR match up is back!

MENTOR match up is back for Winter 2013 and is accepting applications for mentors (Professionals) and mentees (Students – must be an AIGA Contributing member or above.)

How it works:
Once mentors and mentees have applied, our AIGA Charlotte board will match you based on your interests and desired career path. At the kickoff on February 13, you’ll meet your mentor / mentee, hear great ideas for how to start your mentoring relationship, and receive specifics about the program itself.

Potential Mentees: (priority given to first time participants)
Mentee participation is open to AIGA members only (Not a member yet ? Join today.) who are looking to continue their education where the classroom cannot. Mentees should be current students or recent graduates (after December 2011).

Potential Mentors:
It’s your chance to give back. We are looking for candidates who have a minimum of five years of professional experience and have time over the three-month program to meet with a mentee on a regular basis.

Visit the AIGA Charlotte site to find out more and to register.

Note: Application does not guarantee a spot into the program. Because of the need to match on an even basis, applications will be approved based on the number of mentors/mentees that apply and if any have to be put on a wait list for the next mentorship program, money will be refunded accordingly. After you sign up, you’ll get an email with an application to fill out and  then applicants will be notified of acceptance into the program a few days after.
