Mentorship Program FAQ
Who is eligible for the DirectEmployers Mentorship Program?
All Members of DirectEmployers, whether industry veteran or a newbie, are eligible to participate for no additional fee.
What are the benefits of becoming a mentor or mentee?
For mentors, this program is an opportunity to give back, become better leaders, refine your communication skills, expand your network AND provide a warm welcome to new Members or those who need some guidance along the way.
For mentees, this is a phenomenal way to connect with a senior HR professional who can offer insight, advice, and the personal development needed to navigate your way through the next stage of your career.
What is the time commitment?
Each mentorship will run for a 10-month cycle and help strengthen professional and personal development for both the mentor and mentee. Throughout the program, there will be a few objectives that must be completed to move forward in the process and ensure that the experience is valuable for both participants.
How will mentors and mentees be matched?
To best match mentors and mentees, individuals will complete an initial assessment form that provides information focused on areas such as:
- Area Expertise
- Areas of Interest
- Location (if seeking a mentor/mentee you can meet in-person)
- Company size
What is DirectEmployers’ role during the program?
DirectEmployers will conduct the initial assessment survey and set up the kick-off call between the mentor and mentee. We will continue to check-in at various points throughout the program to gain feedback of it’s success. Mentors and mentees will have the autonomy to meet based on the frequency and times that work best for their schedules.
