How to proactively reach out to mentors

Your career development belongs to no one else but you. Carpe Diem!

Here are our 5 tips to get started.

Tip #1

MenteeMe matches you with mentors based on what you want to learn. Check out your Recommended Matches and when you find a mentor you want to connect with kick-off that relationship by Requesting Mentorship.

Tip #2

Once your mentor accepts your request we suggest you start conversation in the app by introducing yourself.

Tip #3

Tell them what you want to get from the connection. Is there a specific topic you want advice on, or are you looking for a more general ongoing conversation?

Tip #4

You can have more than one mentor at a time, but be realistic with how much time you have and how much development you can cope with!

Tip #5

Make a good impression. Mentors give up their time and share their expertise, they’re going to be good people to have on your side for the future!
