Fellows Seek Early Career Mentees

Tim Kelly Fellow of the Institute

The deadline to apply for the next round of the Early Career Mentoring program is December 15.

The program pairs Fellows of the Institute with members who are within three years out of school for one-on-one mentoring at the Annual Conference & Stage Expo.

Electronic submissions should include the application cover page, an outline of no more than a page of long- and short-term goals including areas of interest and type of entertainment career being pursued, a one-page resume, supporting documents (no more than six images), one-page narrative explaining what establishing a Mentee/Mentor relationship will mean to applicant’s career, and up to two letters of support. Email applications to Richard Devin

Successful candidates for the 2016 Annual Conference & Stage Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah in March will be chosen based on their background, work history, demonstrated competence in their field of interest, and ability to articulate their future goals. Successful candidates will receive a full conference registration and $1,000 to help offset other expenses.

The Mentor and the ECM Mentee will have an initial one hour “get acquainted” meeting at the start of the conference. From that point they will agree upon how often and when they will meet during the Conference and what the objectives of their association will be. Together they may wish to attend specific sessions, tour the Expo Floor, be introduced to some of the Mentor’s colleagues, and meet to go over areas of special interest. The ultimate goal of the program is to establish a long-term relationship between the Mentor and Early Career Member. Apply Now.

A panel will be appointed by the Chair of the Fellows to receive applications and select two Early Career Member applicants for the 2016 program.

Applicants must be a USITT Early Career Member, have been a member (any category) for a minimum of two years, agree to attend the Salt Lake City Conference for the full conference period, and agree to provide a written report of their Mentoring experience by May 30, 2016.
