Mentorship Program & Circles

Calling all students and young professionals! 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 casual speed networking format, you’ll be able to choose the professionals that you want to meet throughout your evening. After a panel and Q + A session, you’ll be able to sit with a group of your peers to learn and ask questions from multiple mentors of your choosing at your own pace. 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!
