Become a Mentor
The Mentorship Mixer is on February 7th from 5:30-8:00 PM.
Location: Melcher Hall 150
Registration Deadline is Wednesday at 11:59 PM, February 5th.
Share your knowledge with a young professional. Even if you’ve never wanted to be a teacher, sharing your knowledge with someone else can be empowering. Help other professionals avoid pitfalls you may have faced in your career, become better at specific tasks or assignments, or learn to navigate the organization you’re working for.
Build additional professional relationships. Although you probably have a variety of professional connections at this stage in your career, a mentor-mentee relationship offers different benefits than other acquaintance-like relationships. You’re certainly more connected to your mentee than other networking contacts. Not only can your mentee introduce you to people to add to your network, but you can do the same for them too.
Develop leadership and management skills. Becoming a mentor can help you learn how to oversee and guide others. Discover how to manage younger workers and tap into your leadership abilities through advising a mentee.
Give back to your industry. Mentoring is an opportunity to help young professionals improve their skills, continue their education, and become better at their jobs. Not only does it help your industry (and perhaps your organization, should you mentor someone within it), but it can also make you feel good by helping someone else.
