NAMIC’s Mentorship Program Relaunch
Learn more here
To achieve career success in today’s constantly changing, complex work environment, professionals in the telecommunications industry are often challenged to explore avenues outside traditional organizational programs (e.g., company-sponsored training and development initiatives, workshops, and seminars, etc.) for the kind of information, insight, and understanding they need to take charge of their careers. The L. Patrick Mellon Mentorship Program was created to fill this gap for NAMIC members.
NAMIC initially established the mentorship program in 1993, and in 1997 renamed it in honor of the late L. Patrick Mellon, an executive with ESPN, Inc, one of NAMIC’s founding members, and a respected mentor in the cable industry. The goal of the L. Patrick Mellon Mentorship Program is to aid NAMIC members in growing their careers in the telecommunications industry.
All NAMIC members are eligible to participate in the L. Patrick Mellon Mentorship program. Please create a profile at suite.insala.com/login/NAMIC. The goal is to clarify the interests, expectations, needs and goals of the prospective mentee.
Participants in the L. Patrick Mellon Mentorship Program feel that it is one of the greatest benefits of their NAMIC membership providing them the opportunity to:
- Expand their vision
- See new career possibilities
- Polish their skills
- Increase their career visibility and exposure
- Broaden their networks
- Attain professional and personal achievement
Please apply today to begin your L. Patrick Mellon Mentorship Program experience. Contact NAMIC at 212-594-5985 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the program. You must be a NAMIC member to be mentored through the L. Patrick Mellon Program.
