Our program has been refreshed for this year, with Mentees selecting both their preferred Mentor, as well as their preferred method of interaction—this means that Mentors will specialize as well, offering assistance through one, or a couple, types of interactions.

We are currently recruiting Mentors to review resumes (or offer other guidance depending on mentors’ experience). Below is the list of options for participants (both mentors and mentees) to choose from:

  • Resume Review
  • Interview Guidance/Tips
  • Career Exploration
  • Career Advice
  • Internship Advice
  • Job Application Review
  • Planning Advisory Service (PAS) Report, Read and Review
Potential program participants will be able to read brief biographical information about the available Mentor matches, and then request one or more items listed above to discuss with the requested Mentor. The interactions may be as brief, or more detailed, as the mentees and mentors decide.

To participate in our Mentor Program, please follow this link to our Google form and complete the questionnaire by October 31, 2019. If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact Brian Foote by email.

About the Program

The Division's Mentorship Program operates like a matchmaker, linking interested members with professionals in the Division. Through this service, one can ask questions, obtain career advice, and discuss current issues in urban design, historic preservation, and other related topics.

If you have any questions or comments about the program, please contact Brian Foote, Chair-Elect and Mentorship Program Director.
