STEP 1: START
Complete your Professional Connections profile. Make sure your contact information is up to date, add a recent professional profile picture, expand on your bio and import your education and job history information from LinkedIn. Having a complete and accurate profile is crucial to the success of selection and matching. Profile complete? Return back to this page and move on to step 2.
STEP 2: ENROLL- Enrollment has closed for the September-December Cohort. Enrollment will open in November for the January-March Cohort.
Are you looking to be a mentor or mentee? Perhaps both? Sign up.
Make selections for each of the program demographics to set your preferences. Demographics include: topics, venue, specialties, career stage and start/end date. Please note that some fields are required for enrollment. The more information you provide, the easier it will be to make the best match. Keep in mind in order to request a mentor or mentee, you must be enrolled in the program.
STEP 3: SEARCH
Congratulations! You're all set. You completed steps 1-2 and are now ready for the fun stuff. Let the mentoring begin. Do one search or multiple searches.
Use the Mentor Program Directory to input your search criteria. Start by selecting the topic(s) of interest which are categorized as:
• Track your mentoring relationships
• Participate in discussion forums on mentoring topics
• Search for helpful mentoring resources
STEP 4: CONNECT
When you find a person you are interested in establishing a mentor/mentee connection with, click on the member's name to view their profile page. Look around. If you think it's a desired match, look under their profile image for the Mentor Match badge, which when clicked will allow you to request a connection. If it's not a desired match, you can simply select the back button to return to your previous search results.
