The AIGA Orange County student chapter presents the second AIGA OC Mentorship Program starting from February to May! Sign Ups are now open.
More about the AIGA OC Mentorship Program:
Starting a professional relationship can be hard with projects, interviews, portfolios, and schedules- it can get complicated to connect with someone. AIGA OC wants to help connect designers together! Connect! isn’t just about getting to know other designers, it’s about mentoring- learning from someone’s experience in the professional world. Whether your a potential mentor or mentee Connect! is a chance to teach and learn, giving back to the design community and getting your “foot in the door.”
