Ad Club’s mentorship program pairs students and young professionals one-on-one with an advertising professional with a compatible work interest with at least 5 years of agency experience.
Mentors who have volunteered their time will provide their mentee with professional guidance, typically in the forms of portfolio / resume reviews and book / website / blog recommendations. Mentors also recommend networking events / lectures / forums for the mentee to attend, and help guide them in furthering their careers. Many of our mentees have gone on to work at local agencies and go on to serve on the Ad Club Board.
This is a FREE 2-semester length program beginning in October and finalizing in May.

Mentees will be paired with select advertising professionals in the Richmond community who will offer their expertise and recommendations on their portfolios and resources that guide creative professionals. Mentees will also receive recommendations on networking events/lectures/forums/workshops to attend, as well introductions that will help build their knowledge about the industry. Please fill out the questions in the application and if you have any issue uploading your resume and a letter of recommendation, email these files to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 11th. Please be as detailed as possible in your responses, so we can find the best possible mentor match for you.
