Consider your path: do you have a few years of work experience under your belt? Have you learned a thing or two after so many years in the industry? Or, are you interested in growing your career? Are you experiencing a major work-life change?
Wherever you are in your journey, if you bring the experience or interest, we’ll provide the platform — MentorTech Professional Partnerships is back by popular demand and returning for a second cohort beginning in February.
Launched last spring, Georgia Tech Human Resource’s MentorTech is an employee mentoring program that strategically pairs mentees and mentors into a one-on-one experience focused on creating professional partnerships.
Interested participants register for either a mentee or mentor role after completing a brief interest form. If a strategic match is available, the employee will be notified they have been paired.
Registration is open now until Jan. 23 at hr.gatech.edu/mentoring.
The program is designed to accommodate participant’s diverse needs and match based on interest in one of the following categories: General Career Guidance, Work/Life Transitions, Sponsor, and Technical Competency.
Throughout the six-month partnership, mentors and mentees will have access to a wealth of resources to support and enrich the professional partnership, including development opportunities and career guidance.
In 2018, MentorTech accepted and paired 142 mentors and mentees who invested 1,140 hours in one another.
"I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor and coach. We were a perfect match," said Ericka Thomas, a 2018 MentorTech participant.
All faculty and staff are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and into a customized experience designed to elevate horizons and strengthen leadership skills.
