Today we talk with Caitlin Quiat about the TLM Mentorship Program, which is a mentorship program designed to connect alumni, students, and recent graduates from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS), and their efforts to create community within the localization industry. Through creating these connections, both mentor and mentee can benefit, by getting a glimpse into what students of localization are learning and the potential talent pool, as well as students being able to hear from current industry professionals and being able to receive advice and anecdotes from more experienced people within the industry. As this is a live conversation, we may delve into talking about other valuable programs, as well!
