Why do mentors matter?
“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.” – John C. Crosby
Being a mentor gives you an invaluable opportunity to make a difference in the career of a future communicator. From sharing advice to building growth opportunities, you help to make the public relations community accessible.
No matter where you are in your public relations career, networking and mentorship are likely all played a role in getting you to where you are now. The benefits of mentorship are numerous.
In a close-knit communications community like the one here in Edmonton, the importance of mentorship is undeniable. Through exchanging ideas and building on each others’ talents you will learn and make the connections to advance your career.
