Calling all Chicago AMA Members and Local College Students!

Lend Your Expertise with Internships, Mentoring and More

As a Chicago AMA member, you are in a unique position to help a local marketing student transition from classroom to cubicle in any number of ways. From spending a few minutes online to a few hours in-person, there’s a volunteer opportunity for every schedule:

  • Provide internship opportunities
  • Permit a student or two to “job-shadow” you for a day
  • Host a small group of students at your office so they can learn how a real agency / department / business runs
  • Be a virtual mentor to a student who wants to learn more about your career path
  • Offer to critique a student resume or portfolio, or spend a few minutes career counseling

It may not sound glamorous, but to an undergraduate student preparing to enter the job force, spending a few minutes with a real-world professional can help allay fears and make the transition smoother. To that end, Chicago AMA is partnering with the following AMA collegiate chapters:

  • Aurora University
  • Columbia College
  • DePaul University
  • Elmhurst College
  • Lewis University
  • Purdue University – Calumet
  • University of Illinois – Urbana Champaign

If you’re interested in contributing to the local marketing scene and helping a student or two out, please complete the short form below and a member of the Chicago AMA Board will contact you within 72 hours.

For immediate assistance, call 312-280-0449.
