Digital proliferation provides freedom to access and connect to people like never before.
Individuals no longer wish to simply be taught to do a job, and in the digital industry there is no such thing as a ‘job for life’.
MenteeMe aims to bridge the gap between expertise and interest, bringing together the future leaders of the digital industry with the experts of today.
The digital industry is one of the most constantly evolving areas of the modern economy.
Individuals with tangible experience of the industry remain relatively rare given modern digital commerce is still less than 25 years old. However, the incredible growth of the digital industry in the last 10 years means it is now one of the most popular verticals for job-seekers.
No longer beholden to the courses, skill development and training of employers, using MenteeMe enables professional people to reach, connect, learn and be inspired by engaging mentors from outside of their employement but relevant to their wider industry.
MenteeMe is a unique proposition in the market, combining the ease of a free to access app with the functionality of a powerful mentoring tool that will give users access to a community of like-minded individuals.
How does it work?
Each user creates a profile and can choose whether they want to join MenteeMe as a mentor, mentee or both. Prospective mentors need to have at least five years experience.
A proprietary algorithm intelligently matches skills, interests and experience entered by the user to create recommended matches for each mentee or mentor.
Each mentor can choose whether or not to accept a mentoring request from a mentee. MenteeMe then guides the mentoring relationship with messaging to facilitate a face-to-face meeting, structured pre-mentoring guidance, and mentoring resources like session plans, structured workshops, advice for mentors and timelines.
