NOTE: Times like these demand responsibility, but also some creativity! We are working quickly to turn this into an engaging online event. We’ll be keeping the same date and time, so stay tuned for details and join us remotely.
AIGA DFW’s Mentor Matchmaking event is designed to connect you with seasoned professionals that can help you navigate your career. You'll select your preferred mentors based on their experience profiles, and get scheduled for 15-minute conversations with three of them over the course of the evening. Be prepared to discuss your dreams and fears, but leave your portfolio out of it; our mentors will guide you through issues plaguing your career and discuss ideas for enhancing it, so the evening won’t be about your book.
If both you and a potential mentor feel like a perfect match, AIGA DFW will facilitate an exchange of direct contact information after the event so that you can keep in touch.
This is a popular event, and seating is extremely limited, so purchase be sure to purchase your ticket before they sell out!
