School prepares you to make create great things, but who prepares you to have a great career? How do you achieve mastery if you practice alone? Do you understand your options and how to leverage them?
You need a mentor.
A mentor is one of the most valuable professional relationships you can cultivate. And let’s be honest, just because someone is your creative director, doesn’t mean they should be your mentor.
Mentor Matchmaking is designed to help you meet the mentor of your dreams. You’ll select multiple mentors based on their experience profiles, and then be scheduled for a one-on-one conversation with each of them over the course of the evening. Your potential mentors will chat for 15 minutes about issues that plague your creative career, and ideas for enhancing it. If both you and a potential mentor agree that the conversation went well, AIGA DFW will facilitate trading direct contact information for the future.
To join this 7th edition of our popular Mentor Matchmaking event, please purchase your ticket today, as this event always sells out. Come with your most pressing problems and quandaries but leave the portfolio at home. Our mentors would love to discuss your hopes and fears, but they won’t be looking at your book. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
