Attention Prospective Mentors and Mentees:
B'More Creatives is proud to officially launch its 2016 Mentor Program! This exciting program will connect experienced creatives with creatives early in their career in need of a mentor, specifically those in environments without Art Directors or design supervisors, to help them further develop their career by developing design and business skills.
Bmore Creatives will match Mentors/Mentees in April 2016. After this meeting the pairs will develop their own relationships and reach out to Bmore Creatives for support if necessary.
Why participate in this program? Why Not! For Mentors, this is your chance to help someone! Perhaps someone helped you early on in your career or you wish someone had. Now you can share your knowledge in a way that truly enriches the career of someone who needs you! For Mentees, this is your chance to get real world knowledge from someone who has lived through building their career.
Mentors will have at least 5 years of experience in the design industry and preferably management experience. Mentors need to be comfortable providing direct feedback and tangible solutions to the Mentees. Mentors, to sign up for this enriching experience, please fill out our mentor application.
Mentees will be new grads up to 5 years of experience in the field or those switching skills sets within in the industry. (For example a print designer with 10 years of experience transitioning to web programming with only 1 year of experience.) Mentees need to be someone committed to learning, absorbing feedback and working on goals. Mentees, to be considered for this amazing program, please fill out our mentee application.
-Meet once a quarter in person (3x per 6 month session) to discuss work situations, successes and issues. At the outcome of each meeting the Mentee will have determined 3 work and personal goals to complete based upon the conversation.
-Monthly check-ins done via email or phone to discuss goal progress or problems.
-Mentor will be available to the Mentee via phone or email if issues arise that need immediate advice.
So c'mon and apply. Spots are limited!
