The primary criteria/preferences used to assist in the matching of mentor to mentee are:
Specific industry or type of organization
Specific issues you would like to emphasize as a mentoring topics
It is expected that both mentors and mentees will put forth their best efforts to create a positive relationship. If these efforts are unsuccessful contact the Mentoring Team via email at [email protected]
Only one mentee will be assigned per mentor.
You will be put on a waiting list in case somebody drops from the program.
Generally they will be chosen on a best match basis. However, the logistics of matching may mean that even if your application was #1 and no appropriate match was found then you would not be paired. The general concept for matching is experience, industry, professional specialization, mentoring preferences, location proximity and variety of less important considerations.
