Early Career Mentoring Program
Develop a lasting connection with a seasoned professional in your field by participating in the Early Career Mentoring Program at USITT 2018.
Developed by USITT Fellows, this opportunity brings together mentors and Early Career members to discuss career opportunities and future goals, provide career guidance, and introduce mentees to other USITT members and exhibitors.
“From the moment I met my mentors, I knew that they were greatly interested in my career and wanting to help me in any way possible,” said USITT 2017 Early Career Mentoring Program mentee Korey Lamb. “I know that as I progress in my career, they will both help me with any roadblocks or barriers I encounter.”
