Mentoring and Portfolio Review
Mentoring appointments offer support for current CAA members at any stage of their career, regarding professional development and portfolio review. Applicants are paired in one-on-one meetings with an experienced professional from within the membership for individual twenty-minute consultations. Topics are open and may include: how to conduct a thorough job search; present cover letters, CVs, and digital images; and prepare for interviews. Whenever possible, CAA matches participants and mentors based on medium or discipline.
Unfortunately, the few applicants and mentors did not make matches based on areas of specialization, professional interest and/or professional development need. The onsite the program has been cancelled for the 2020 Annual Conference.
We look forward to revisiting this idea and creating a robust program for 2021, which will offer support for CAA members at any stage of their career, regarding professional development and portfolio review.
