Mentoring

mentoring-fpoSuccessful People Never Reach Their Goals Alone

The AMA New York Mentoring Program connects less experienced members with more experienced marketing professionals for career advice, guidance and support. The program was designed based on member feedback. It is run by a committee of marketing professionals to ensure all participants are supported and get value from participating in the program.

These days mentoring is rarely a one-way street. Technology has greatly impacted the world of marketing, and often times less experienced marketers simply know more about technology. While Mentors share value lessons and guidance about professional and life experience, Mentees should be ready to share their own expertise with their Mentors.

Program Length

The matching period, called the matching cycle, is eight months long. The program is run once per year, starting in the first quarter and running until the Fall. Each participating Mentor and Mentee must commit to work together for the entire eight-month matching period. Enrollment is open now for the current matching period which will start in March 2019 and end in November.

Time Requirement

As a program participant you are required to interact with your Mentor/Mentee at least once a month. Each relationship will be different, but to get the most out of the program, we recommend a minimum of 1-1/2 hours per month spent on the program and at least one interaction per month. Your first meeting must be in person or via video to create the relationship, set goals and expectations. After the first meeting, interactions may take place through in-person meetings, emails, video chat or telephone call.
