    I would 100% recommend the BASS Mentorship Program (BMP) program. You attend events, grow your network, receive one-on-one feedback from your mentor, network with industry professionals, test your skills in a pitch-off competition, and make a ton of friends along the way.The mentors the organizing committee select are all equally supportive and inspiring. They makeyou want to take advantage of the things they’ve accomplished and created a drive to work hard.
