We Are (Always) Looking for Mentors
Do you want to give back to the community, are there mistakes and advice you wish you could pass onto to someone else? Our mentorship program connects people looking advice and guidance (often career related but not always) with mentors who want to give back. We have found that mentorship significantly improves the job hunting/transition experience and provides huge benefits to both the mentor and mentee in terms of leadership development and confidence building. Even more amazing, anyone at any age and in any industry can be a mentor, the one thing all our mentors have in common is simply a willingness to listen and the bravery to offer direction. We consider mentorship the foundation of the Career Skills Incubator and are committed to nurturing this program.
We provide mentors with training and work with them to fit their schedule and time they are willing to offer to the program. Mentors have found the experience not only a powerful way to give back to the community but an opportunity for personal development as well.
If you are interested in joining our 100+ community of mentors please sign up at www.menteer.ca.
