How to develop the Next Gen of Advertising & Marketing Talent

AMA Toronto has launched a new program dubbed the AMA Toronto Career Accelerator, where the focus is helping young professionals to accelerate their career with the help of an experienced marketing professional.

“We know that many young professionals are trying to get ahead in their careers, but are faced with obstacles that might hold them back.” Says Michelle Flynn, VP Membership at AMA Toronto.  “Joining an industry association may seem logical, but when facing heavy workloads and a limited network, it can make it hard for these young marketers to realize the value of these programs”

Inspired by AMA Toronto’s Mentor Exchange program, the Career Accelerator was created to meet the needs of junior marketing professionals looking to move up the ladder in their careers. The program provides affordable and exclusive access to membership, mentorship and programming. It is designed to expose young professionals to the many different career paths within the industry, while arming them with tools to become a better marketer, and a powerful networker.

Co-chair of AMA Toronto’s Mentor Exchange program, Craig Lund, suggests that mentorship from a more seasoned peer can be transformative, and the best peers are those who have first hand experience being mentored.  “Many of the Mentor Exchange alumni have enjoyed such impactful results from being mentored, they are hungry to return the favour to the next generation of marketers” says Lund.  “This program was born from the huge interest in our graduating mentees wanting to become mentors themselves, as well as the number of applicants who applied to Mentor Exchange who were too junior to meet the program requirements.”
