Mentor For A Day: Matching Promising Marketing Students with Marketing Leaders

Now in its 10th year, DMAWEF’s Mentor For A Day program has provided an entry point for marketing students at local universities to experience a day in the life of a direct marketer. This free program matches talented students with professionals at leading marketing agencies, data vendors, production companies, and other service providers throughout the Washington, DC area for a day on the job.

Students connect with staff at all levels to hear about about the strategies, techniques, trends, and emerging developments in integrated marketing. Companies are introduced to skilled students interested in direct marketing careers, creating connections for possible future internships and/or hires.
