Mentees and Mentors will register for the program from February 1, 2016 until February 12, 2016. Matches will be determined prior to the kick-off that will take place on March 2. At the kick-off meeting you’ll learn about University and program guidelines for mentors/mentees and hear from previous participants in the program. The kick-off meeting is recommended for first-time participants.
Here are a few suggestions for sharing your experience in the profession with your mentee:
• Arrange a tour of your organization for your mentee;• Allow your mentee to job shadow with you or someone else in your organization;• Allow one-on-one interactions to share experiences, resources and answer their career-related questions;• Invite your mentee to visit a job site(s);• Invite your mentee to attend an office or staff meeting or an appointment with a client or attend a professional association meeting with you or someone else in your organization.
If you are not able to meet face-face, consider interactions through electronic communication, telephone, and tools such as Skype and Face Time.
Thank you in advance for your participation. We look forward to meeting you at our kick-off celebration on March 2.
