If I was a junior on a team during a campaign launch, is that something I can put in my book? I helped during the concepting phase, was responsible for keeping the boards up to date, and wrote a lot of the supporting materials (print, social etc) but obviously I was not on the shoot or the lead on writing the script. As long as I’m clear about my role is that acceptable?

Question about mentorship: in formal mentorship relationships (for ex. Where your mentor is a partner you work for and there is no personal friendship or friendliness), how often would you expect to meet/ talk to your mentor? And what kind of issues do you think should be discussed or not discussed? For ex. If I’m facing a particular issue while working with another member of our team, or I think my bonus needs to be extra good this year, are those topics that would be appropriate to discuss?
