IRE is taking applications to participate in the mentorship program at the 2019 CAR Conference in Newport Beach, California.

Click here to apply to be a mentor or to receive mentorship.

Before the conference (March 7-10), IRE will pair mentors with mentees and make sure they connect in Newport Beach. These one-on-one sessions are opportunities to seek advice on challenging reporting projects, get ideas for professional development and forge connections for the road ahead.

Mentors and mentees also will meet for a continental breakfast on Friday, March 8 — beginning a professional relationship that can last a lifetime.

The program is not designed for job seekers; Instead, participants will focus on teaching and sharing information. Mentees should come prepared with questions, examples of work and story ideas. We’re also looking for mentors who are willing to share their knowledge.

IRE will accept applications until Sunday, Feb. 4, 2019. You must be registered for the conference to participate, and space in this popular program is limited.
