Mentor/Mentee Guidelines and Expectations
Mentee enrollment occurs twice per year during December/January/February? and May/June windows. If you miss the enrollment period, please check back during the next window. The role of the mentee is to work with a mentor to achieve mutually agreed upon goals.
Mentees will request mentors based on their Leadership Profiles and given willingness or expertise in one or more selected topics. Mentees are required to update their Leadership Profiles and turn on email notifications for myIMA network. Mentees will request mentors based on matches for specific industry topics and criteria. Mentors have two weeks to accept the request. If the relationship is not accepted by the mentor, the request will be declined, and the mentee will be entered back in the mentee pool to make a new request. Mentees must be willing to work with the mentor at least once per month at a mutually acceptable time, preferably via Skype or virtual call, but phone and/or in-person is acceptable, as well.
Mentoring is NOT for career networking, resume building, or job searching.
