Minnesota PRSA Seeking mentors for PROAm Day

If you've ever had a mentor, you know what a difference that guidance can make - to your career and your confidence. Now, as a solo practitioner, you can step up and return the favor on Pro-Am Day, Friday, March 1.

Minnesota PRSA is sponsoring its annual mentoring event, matching Minnesota PR professionals with students from the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). We'll begin by job shadowing from 9 a.m. - 2:15 p.m., followed by an optional speed-networking event.

The Pro-Am event is always fun - and hugely rewarding. But in the past, we've had more students than professionals participate, and we haven't had enough solo practitioners. With your help, we can turn that trend around!

These students are bright, eager and ambitious. But they need personal and professional connections to help them see the possibilities and realize their potential. I hope you'll take one day and be that person. Please consider sharing your PR knowledge, and sign up to be a professional mentor on Pro-Am Day by February 20.
