Five Questions With…. Mentor Aaron Maybin,
Comm '15 (Esmeralda Nungaray, communication mentee)

Mentor Aaron Maybin1. You are the first to have served as a program mentee and mentor. What suggestions do you have for mentees and mentors?
For mentees: Reach out to your mentors consistently, not just when you’re

looking for a job. For mentors: Remember where your head was at when you were a student.

2. Prior to graduation from Marquette in 2015, you planned to attend graduate school at Columbia but instead decided to go directly into TV. What suggestions do you have for someone considering graduate school vs. the workforce?
In the journalism world, working right after graduation is the smartest move. Each career is different. I suggest reaching out to professionals for guidance.

3. What’s the biggest difference you’ve found as a mentor compared to serving as a mentee?
Someone is relying on me to help propel their career and/or provide industry insight. I’ve felt more invested as a mentor. 

4. What are two things a Marquette student should do before graduation?
Take advantage of the many volunteering opportunities and road trip to a fun destination during a break. 

5.  Something you wish you would’ve done differently at Marquette to help prepare for your career?
I wish I would have networked a little bit more. People are always willing help young people.  

Aaron Maybin, Comm ’15, is a reporter with FOX6 News in Milwaukee. This marks his first year as a MUAA Mentor Program mentor. He previously served as a mentee to Jason DeRusha, Comm '97, WCCO-TV, Minneapolis-St. Paul, during the 2014-15 program.
