    6. 6. PMP: Nuts & Bolts • Two-year program pairing professionals with juniors and seniors at Leeds • Mentors should connect (inperson, phone, Skype/FaceTime) at least twice per semester with their student(s) • Be available for advice and support via phone or email • Be willing to share your personal and professional experience, insights, and network with your student • Optional: Attend kick-off and end-of-year celebrations, participate in networking events, workshops, provide connections to jobs or internships, etc.
    7. 7. Leeds Mentoring Network Software 1) Manage Your Partnership • Personal – you and your mentee • Partnership Info & Support 2) Share Resources • Job & Internship Postings • Forums/Q&A • Program Resources 3) Create Community • Beyond one-on-one partnership • Announcements, events, cont acts
    8. 8. Mentor Tips Student Perspective Use Skype: Mentors have found Skype to be extremely helpful in building rapport with their student mentee when meeting in-person is impossible due to distance or time constraints. “My advice for mentors with students who don’t know what they want to do is to ask specific questions about what they like and dislike, rather than general questions about what they want to do.” “Remember to reach out if you haven’t heard from your mentee in a while, because while we try to stay connected, it sometimes gets busy in the world of a student.” Set a Schedule: Mentors and students feel that a schedule helps them to set aside time on a consistent basis to dedicate to their partnership. Set Clear Expectations: How often will you communicate? Who will initiate contact? Answer these question upfront to avoid confusion later on. It’s Not Just About the Job Search: The PMP’s primary aim is soft-skill development. Feel free to provide feedback on all areas that relate to professionalism “I would advise mentors to try to relate to mentees on as personal a level as possible to make the relationship feel more real and less structured.” “Take your mentee to your office and allow them to shake some hands.”
