We’re hosting a special event for students interested in the communications field. This upcoming Tuesday September 10th at 7:30pm, the ABAC (Atlanta Broadcast Advertising Club) and AWM (Alliance for Women in Media) will be promoting their Atlanta Media Mentorship Program, which is open to Grady students. Sean Jones, the president of ABAC, will be giving a presentation. Students who attend this meeting will be given detailed information about the mentorship program as well as the application process. The meeting will be located in MLC 153.
This is a rare opportunity and year-long program in which participants are able to shadow their professional mentor at their place of employment, attend networking events, panel discussions, professional club events, and speaking engagements in Atlanta, when both mentor/mentee schedules permit. Some of the participating companies include: CNN, Initiative Media, Katz Media, Meredith Corp, Gannett, 22squared, GroupM, and Cox Enterprises. If interested, AdClub highly encourages students to attend this informational meeting!
This meeting will be followed by a complimentary mixer at Transmetropolitan downtown (145 E Clayton St), where students can talk to former mentees as well as ABAC/AWM mentors.
