NYU in LA Mentor Program

L.A. is calling you but you're nervous because you don't know anyone there. Who can you turn to with questions about everything from apartment hunting to job searching to commuting to where to get the best iced coffee?

Well, worry no more. Instead, apply for the NYU in LA Mentor Program! The Tisch Offices of Career Development and Alumni Relations have collaborated to create this mentorship program to facilitate your transition to the West Coast. Designed for recent graduates and newly-arriving alumni, this program pairs participants pursuing a career in the arts in Los Angeles with a local mentor in a small group environment to begin their personal and professional transition to the West Coast.

Topics will cover logistics (arrival to L.A., moving etc.) as well as acclimating to the world of work and local lifestyle. Each group will work together to get you settled, offer advice and guidance as you seek out your goals in Hollywood, as well as help you plan and assess short and long term career goals. These groups are designed to facilitate conversation about experiences adjusting to L.A., such as interviewing, apartment hunting, car shopping, etc. This is not an internship or job placement program. Each mentee will be expected to work actively with their mentor and fellow mentees toward their specific and personal pursuits. 

Who should apply:
This program is open to new graduates and alumni newly-arrived to L.A. only. 
Alumni eligible for this program must have graduated within the past three years (Class of 2013-2016).
Applicants should be new to L.A. or have been in L.A. less than one year.
Program is limited to 40 mentees. 
The program will start in September 2016 and end in May 2017. The opening event and the first meeting will take place in early/mid-September. Applicants should plan to be in or arrive in L.A. no later than September 1st, 2016
