Why Mentoring?

Having a mentor can help you shape a more successful career in less time.  

Mentors provide advice, support, and guidance in areas with which they are familiar.  Mentors give honest feedback, offer encouragement, and help you meet your goals. Mentors share their experience, provide visibility into their own careers, and help you build a network. Each mentoring relationship is different, because each person's goals are different. 

People who have a mentor report higher levels of satisfaction with their careers and are more likely to follow a career plan.
