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. To achieve this goal the chapter has created a Mentee Training Module to enhance the mentee’s ability to establish, develop, and maintain valuable professional contacts.

The assigned mentor will:

  • 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.
  • 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 refer you to the chapter’s course offerings.

 

Mentors will select their mentees at the Mentorship Networking Event. Our Mentor volunteers are limited and so that our mentees get as much time and attention as they may need, all Mentee applicants may not receive a mentor for the upcoming cycle but will remain on the waiting list and reviewed for the following cycle. The mentor/mentee will need to be available to spend between 1-5 hours per month over a three 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!
