Education and Workforce: Mentor Program

2014-2015 Mentoring Program

Are you new to the HR profession, trying to navigate your way in the workplace and through company politics?  Or, have you been working as an HR professional for many years and want to take your career to the next level?  Having a Mentor may be just what you need!

What is HR mentoring? It is the opportunity to guide and help develop professionally a mentee who is anxious and ambitious to enhance their HR career.

If you’ve been in HR for a few years and enjoy giving back to the HR community, why not mentor an entry-level HR person?  Or, if you are a senior manager – you have great experience and a solid knowledge base - why not share some of your experiences with mid-level HR people trying to make that leap into senior management? 

If you can relate to any of the above, consider participating in CSHRM’s Mentoring Program!  Benefits for Mentees & Mentors include:
