Ideas for Connecting With a Mentee

Being a mentor does not have to take up a large amount of your time.

Here are some ideas:

  • Allow them to job shadow with you for a day
  • Connect on LinkedIn and chat
  • Meet for lunch
  • Schedule a phone call

What to Know First

  • The program must facilitate a mutually fulfilling relationship between the mentees and the mentors wherein both parties serve as beneficiary and contributor.
  • Act as an advocate for promoting and recruiting other professionals.
  • There must be direct interaction with mentees. Sitting behind a desk processing paperwork is not an acceptable Mentorship Connection program activity.
