From brand strategy to creative direction to media planning to data analytics, MADE mentors represent a wide range of focus areas and companies within the marketing & advertising industry. Students are matched with mentors based on mutual areas of interest, college major, and in some cases, alma maters.
Mentors and mentees must sign-up by May 13th in order to be matched.
Pairs are encouraged to meet for four times between June and September. Meetings can be conducted via phone, video, or in-person depending on mutual preferences.
No! While MADE Finalists are prioritized in the mentor matching process, any current college students are welcome to sign-up.
Our goal is to match at least 250 students this summer. The more mentors that sign up, the more students we can help.
We hope this program provides a rewarding experience for mentors who want to give back, as well as an invaluable opportunity for students to learn about the industry and gain an edge at the start of their careers. Mutual goals include:
- Building leadership and communication skills
- Developing relationships in the industry
- Learning about different perspectives
- Making a new friend!
