What Our Editorial Mentorship Program Looks Like in 2022
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we network — but it hasn’t put an end to it. Whether you and your mentor/mentee live on the same block or on opposite coasts, you can still have a successful relationship. Here are a few ways that you can connect virtually:
• Follow each other on social media and share/comment/engage in each other’s content in a positive way.
• Join fellow mentor-mentee pairs for small, subject-specific Zoom happy hours (i.e., women’s mags meetup, fashion meet-up, beauty meet-up).
• Share job posts, news articles, and other relevant info to support each other’s career and ambitions.
• Broaden your mentee’s network by introducing them to some colleagues / friends in mediat
• Give a virtual “office tour” by sharing their screen and showing what their working on right now to get a behind-the-scenes peek into your job.
