We know you’re told time and time again that networking is the key to internships, jobs, and success, but it can sometimes be overwhelming to start. Ad Fed’s Mentorship Event allows individuals to engage with industry professionals in a casual group setting.

In a speed networking format, you’ll be able to choose the professionals that you want to meet throughout your evening. There will be three “rounds” of networking where you’ll be able to sit with a group of your peers to learn and ask questions from a mentor at your chosen table. You’ll leave with new advice, ideas, and connections that will help you continue your own career journey.

These professionals are knowledgeable, experienced, enthusiastic and committed to supporting the professional development of “mentees”. They will be eager to share their journeys with you!

Dress is “Smart Casual”. No shorts, but no need for a tie either, and blazers can dress up anything!

Ad Fed’s Mentorship Events are held three times a year and offer networking, discussion and group mentorship based on many areas of interest, including:

  • Account Planning
  • Account Services
  • Creative (e.g., Designers, Copywriters, Art Directors, Creative Directors)
  • Media
  • Public Relations
  • Corporate Marketing
  • Interactive (e.g., planning, social, user-experience, design, technology)
