“Through the Mentorship Program, I gained a good relationship with a peer in the industry, we didn’t have the exact same role but had a lot of commonalities that made for good conversation points.”

    “I was able to establish a good relationship with an industry professional with a lot of experience. I feel like I could reach out to them anytime in the future if needed!”

    “I learned about the structure of a larger company with a bigger marketing department than where I work. I made a good friend that I hope to remain close with.”

    “I was glad to be paired with my mentor, they had great advice when I needed it, and was also fun to get together with and catch up with. I can tell the committee put a lot of thought into the mentor/mentee pairs.”

    Mentorship Program

    We are currently looking for SMPS Triangle members who would like to participate in the 2020 - 2021 Mentorship Program, which aims to assist AEC marketers in their personal growth and professional development. Whether you have the knowledge to teach or are looking to learn, there is something in this program for everyone. No matter what stage you are in your career, you can benefit from participating in a mentor/mentee relationship to gain career insights from another industry professional.

    The program operates from October through June. Mentors and mentees will submit a short application and be matched based upon their backgrounds and career tracks. Pairs will be introduced at an initial group orientation. Mentors and mentees are then asked to meet at least one hour per month. Normally, these meetings would take place in person, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that you meet however you feel most comfortable.

    Professionals at all stages of their career should consider participating: beginning marketers who are serious about their career development and would like to learn from an experienced professional should apply to be a mentee and seasoned marketers who would like to share their experiences and gain something back from a mentee should consider being a mentor.
