Does my mentee have to be studying in the same industry as I am working in?
No, whilst being in the same industry as your Mentee has its advantages, it is not a requirement of the Matching process.
How long does the program go for/ what is the time commitment?
The Program will run for a maximum of 6 months. During that time it is expected that the matched Mentor and Mentee will meet a minimum of 6 times. You may like to spend a small amount of time preparing for each session. The total time commitment is not expected to exceed 10 hours per Mentor/Mentee relationship.
What happens if I can’t complete the program?
In the first instance please contact the Program Coordinator to discuss further.
If my mentee and I don’t hit it off, what is the process to follow?
In the first instance please contact the Program Coordinator to discuss further. Please refer to the “No Fault Closure of the Relationship” in the Mentor Advantage Program Guidelines.
I haven’t really done anything like this before. What training and support is available to me.
All Mentors will be provided with Mentor Guidelines and Q&A webinars. The Program Coordinator is available to offer further assistance and support as required.
