Mentor/Mentee Guidelines and Expectations
Mentor enrollment is open year-round. The role of the mentor is to provide mentees with knowledge, guidance, and advice on industry topics.
Mentees will request mentors based on their Leadership Profiles and given willingness or expertise in one or more of the topics. Mentors are required to update their Leadership Profiles and turn on email notifications for myIMA network. Mentors will receive notifications that they have a mentee request. Mentors have two weeks to accept the request. If the request if not accepted, the relationship request will be declined, and the mentor’s status will be removed from the active list. Mentors must be willing to meet 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.
