Finding a mentor - Free program for PRSA Boston members

For the second in our ongoing series of free programs for PRSA Boston members, Jack Jackson, veteran PRSA Boston member and Ethics officer, will host a session on Wednesday, June 27 on Finding a Mentor (or as he puts it: How to hunt and capture someone in an impossibly fast-paced and ever-changing workplace who cares as much about your PR career as you do)

Jack shared the following description with me:

Everyone assumes a trusted mentor can spell the difference between career success and an absurdly average work life. But how often does a colleague approach you and offer to serve as a guide? This interactive professional development event is geared to help entry- and mid-level PR practitioners identify prospective mentors and then how to capitalize on their expertise.

Topics covered in the discussion include:

    • Potential sources of mentors
    • Approaching a prospect
    • Sealing the deal
    • The care and feeding of a mentor
The details:

    Wednesday, June 27

    7:00 pm — 8:30 pm

    Needham Public Library

Space is limited. Please respond to Jack@On-Message.com by June 25 to reserve a seat
