ONE MORE WEEK - Apply for the Harvardwood Mentorship Program - LA

Harvardwood is pleased to announce the start of the 2014-15 Harvardwood Mentorship Program (HMP)!

HMP aims to foster meaningful professional relationships by matching Harvard graduates with more established alums in their fields of interest for a period of nine months of one-on-one career mentoring. We're currently seeking mentors and mentees for the 2014-15 season.

Career focus and compatibility will determine the mentor/mentee pairings, and the nature of each mentoring relationship will depend on the individuals and what they have to offer. As working professionals in the arts, media and entertainment have highly variable schedules, there will be a great deal of flexibility to accommodate the mentors’ needs. The program will run in Los Angeles from October 2014 through June 2015.
