The first step to finding a great mentor is to do great work. Mentors invest their time in people who have potential. And we already know you have potential.

Past Reviews from Classes by Emily Miethner, Founder, NY Creative Interns

“Emily is a great teacher because she’s genuine and passionate about what she’s talking about.”

“I made a couple new friends/contacts! I was surprised how effective a virtual event could be.”

“I love NY Creative Interns events because they teach professional principles while being light-hearted and casual. Everything is easier when you feel like you’re in a comfortable and welcoming environment.”

“Emily has tons of first hand experience when it comes to networking and making connections. This class provided some GREAT advice on all sorts of things from how to meet new people, find cool events or how to write an efficient email. The best part was Emily had many personal anecdotes throughout the class that she would share. I would definitely recommend this class to a recent graduate, it really gets you in the mindset you need to start reaching out and get stuff done!”

Emily has met tons of incredibly inspiring people since her transition from college to the “real world” and aims to erase negativity from the phrase “it’s all about who you know.” After all, it is, but that isn’t a bad thing. Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them. Find her on Twitter and LinkedIn.
