Being a Mentee

Mentees gain invaluable insight beyond their own education and experience. Give yourself the edge with the support and guidance of a mentor. Whether you need advice or a sounding board, a mentor can inspire and guide you. Once you are assigned to a mentor, you are encouraged to begin the relationship with specific goals and expectations. Your benefits may extend far beyond what you planned, and may include:

  • Learn practical steps to serving clients and building a career
  • Obtain valuable networking and recruiting opportunities
  • Increase self-awareness of personal and professional capabilities
  • Refine professional and personal goals
  • Improve technical and personal skills required for success from practitioners
  • Exposure to diverse perspectives and experiences

If you can answer "YES" to the following statements, you are a great candidate for our Mentoring Program:

I'm responsible for my career goals and would enjoy the benefit of a mentor's guidance to create a plan for success.

I'm ready to listen, but I'm also ready to share my ideas so it's a give and take relationship.

I'm ready for objective feedback to consider new ideas and new approaches suggested by my mentor.

I have realistic expectations for my mentor relationship. No one is perfect and good relationships take honesty, effort and time.
