Mentoring Program

PMI Metrolina Chapter's goal in its Mentoring Programs is to create a mutually beneficial environment to positively share education, wisdom, and career experiences with another individual that can benefit from the direct and personal interaction.

The assigned mentor will:

  • Provide LIMITED guidance and direction for studying for a PMI exam.  This is intended to clarify concepts for the mentee, give perspective and experience to concepts that may be difficult to understand, or provide general tips for the exam.  This does NOT replace the PMP Prep Program, paid exam preparation, or exam guides.  The mentor is not there to help pass an exam but rather to help if struggling with a specific concept.
  • Provide an expert opinion on project work if assistance is needed.
  • Provide information concerning PMI-Metrolina and the ways you can become involved.
  • Offer advice concerning marketable skills in a specific industry.
  • Provide encouragement, understanding, and an environment where you can discuss goals, ideas, or even frustrations to receive guidance from an experienced professional.

 

Only one mentor will be matched to a mentee at a time so that we are not stretching our volunteers thin and so that our mentees get as much time and attention as they may need. The mentor/mentee will need to be available to spend between 10-20 hours per month over a three to six month period of time working together.  This program is designed to be beneficial to the mentor and the mentee but it will only be as effective as the effort put forth by BOTH parties.  Please be sure that you can commit to this level of interaction or time before volunteering to participate. 

PMI-Metrolina is an organization that likes to pay it forward, give back to others in their community, and be present to help others.  This is another way to provide good moral and ethical stewardship of the resources we have and their sustainability in to the future.  Please consider joining the program today!
