Virtual event; open to mentees and mentee alum only
Navigating the obstacles of today’s job market can be summed up in a single directive: learn how to play the game…Literally. Think fast! After a series of interviews you have landed the job of your dreams—aka, LEVEL TWO. In about a year, you will endeavor to advance to LEVEL THREE, a promotion. To get there, you will spend the next 12 months trying to maintain work/life balance, overcoming challenging tasks, and attempting to make it past the final boss: the annual performance review. What do you do?
This gamified community-building workshop will provide Mentees with the opportunity to access the advice of career savvy NBCU Mentors for the Day to develop their very own ready-player experience depicting each stage of working life—from the application to the exit interview. Game on!
This event is designed for all mentees and mentee alum.
Jeanine Marie Russaw (she/her) is an autistic writer, educator, and content creator who boldly wears her HSP traits as badges of honor. She eagerly joins Girls Write Now with an open heart and a passion for the written word. Jeanine holds a B.A. in Journalism from Hofstra University and recently earned a Master of Arts in Teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education. While pursuing her M.A.T., she rolled up her sleeves and embraced life as an upper elementary classroom teacher, building relationships with more than 120 little someones at the height of a global pandemic. Over time, her love of reading and writing (and love of convincing kids to love reading and writing) became an unmistakable part of her teaching identity. As a writer, her words have found their way within the physical and cyber walls of NBC, CBS and Newsweek. A native of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Jeanine has called Harlem her home for the last seven years…though she has possessed the spirit of a New Yorker since birth.
all mentees, corporate partner employees and program alum
