How do I decide who to work with?
Choosing who to work with is challenging. Here are some tips on how to decide on a mentor.
When chatting with businesses on Acadium, you will want to get on a phone call as soon as possible. Popular options include phone, Zoom, Skype or Google Hangout or even our Acadium calling app.
You can find a time that works for both you and your mentor and schedule a time to chat with our calendar tool, which you can find in your chatbox.
The purpose of the call is for you and your mentor to get to know each other and see if your interests and goals are aligned. Make sure to share your areas of interest and goals in marketing, and to ask business questions too. You're both looking to see if you're a good match.
Calls with Acadium businesses are usually much more friendly than your traditional interviews. Just be yourself and you'll be fine.
Have a few calls with different businesses and only sign an apprenticeship contract when you're both confident that it will be a win-win.
