Young PR Pros

Kristine Simpson and Julia Kent play the final interview grabbed at the IABC Ottawa event After Graduation hosted at Carleton University.

We talk to Kelly Rusk, president of IABC Ottawa and a senior account executive at Banfield Seguin. Kelly talks about her mentor and how she maintains and grows the relationship.

Kristine and Julia quickly see that finding a mentor resembles a love story. You will know when your mentor is "the one" and you need to balance the relationship by giving as much as you take.

Apart from our love stories, one lesson to remember is to not worry about formalizing the act of finding a mentor. Remember a mentor is anyone you go to and seek advice and/or look up to.

We want to hear from you. Tell us your mentor love story. Post your story on our blog or on our Facebook Page, or on our Google+ page, or in our LinkedIn group, or on Pinterest, or send us an email at, or send us a message on Twitter @youngprpros@kristinesimpson or @kentjulia.
