Get Mentored: How to Take Advantage of SAA's Mentoring Program Wednesday, November 14
In this web event, several guests joined us for a panel discussion about SAA's Mentoring Program. We heard from current mentors and proteges about their experiences with the SAA Mentoring Program and how it can help your career planning. We also heard from Alison Clemens and Jennifer Motszko, Co-Chairs of the Mentoring Program Subcommitte, about how the program works and how students can sign up. This event was full of great information and advice on the mentorship program in general, but also on the importance of networking for professional development.
