What does it mean to be a mentor?
Until you can meet up for coffee or cocktails (if you are fully vaxed — do it!). Until then you can’t have a successful mentorship! Here are a few ways that mentors and mentees can connect virtually:
• Follow each other on social media and sharing/commenting/engaging in each other’s content in a positive way.
• Join up with fellow mentor-mentee pairs for small-group, subject-specific Zoom happy hours (i.e., women’s mags meetup, fashion meet-up, beauty meet-up).
• Mentors can provide notes on resumes and cover letters via Google docs for mentees.
• Share job posts, news articles, and other relevant info to support each other’s career and ambitions.
• Mentors can offer 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.

Does your resume need help? Join Ed’s Zoom workshop just for recent grads!
It’s no fun graduating in the middle of a global pandemic. It sucks on so many levels, but for sure this one: the crappy job market. It was SO GREAT just a few months ago and now. Well, all we can say is UGH. NOW is the time to prepare your resume (and your badass self) so you are ready to pounce on your dream job when it opens up. As you may know, the media industry has its own quirks and preferences for how experience is formatted and how your skills are highlighted with a special emphasis on showcasing your niche and creativity. In this Zoom class, on Tuesday, June 29 at 12 p.m. EST, I will help you makeover your resume so it speaks the language of the editors you’ll be applying to work for.
