Virtual Mentor Programming

2023 Virtual Mentor Programming

APPAM is excited to offer virtual opportunities for mentors and mentees this year! These meet-ups will be one-hour Zoom meetings with approximately ten breakout rooms each. 

Meet-Up Format:

  • Approximately 10 mentors per meet-up, one to two per breakout room.
  • Mentors will introduce themselves and their background in the general Zoom meeting room to help you decide whose breakout room you would like to attend.
  • Students will be randomly transferred to a breakout room where you can ask questions directly and network. You will then have the option to switch rooms at your request and speak to multiple individuals.

Wednesday, February 22, 3:00 PM Eastern

This meet-up is open to all APPAM student members! Get general advice and ask mentors questions about job document review, resume writing, navigating the job market, and more.
