Mentees for 2016-17
Mentor: Cilla Snowball, Group Chairman and Group CEO, AMVBBDO
Why ALMP? Whilst I know I would like to follow a career path in PR/advertising, I have little experience in the field and would love to have a more in depth knowledge, so a specific breakdown of the sector would be incredibly useful. This would help me to focus my attention when I am looking for a job as well as give me a good idea about what to expect. Personal insight is hugely important, you could help direct me to reputable graduate schemes and help to focus me on what areas of work experience would be useful. I would also value having a professional contact in the field I want to work in, this will be extremely useful.
