Open notebook set against a teal background, with photorealistic and graphic elements including flowers, sketches, and polaroids of youth.

Wednesday, April 17
4:45-5:45PM ET

Virtual event; open to all mentees, mentee alum, staff and the public

Professionals share how they went from mentees and interns to employees in this power hour of interactive heart warmers, reflection and intimate exchange of information and experience to prime you to land (and keep) your next role.

In Career Chats, mentees gain exposure to various industries by networking with employees—Girls Write Now “Mentors for the Day”—across publishing, media, beauty, finance, and more. Professionals share their personal journeys, professional advice for breaking into their industry, and how they are charting a course for a successful career. Learn about positions you never knew existed, and get support applying to a curated selection of open jobs and internships within companies like NBC, Scholastic, Royal Bank of Canada, Estee Lauder, Dotdash Meredith, EHE Health, BBDO Advertising, and more!
