MentorTech

Find your next professional partnership. Now accepting mentor and mentee registrations.

Georgia Tech’s MentorTech program is strategically designed to foster the professional development and career growth of Georgia Tech’s employees while building diverse networks across the Institute.

Take the next step towards creating a professional partnership. Do you have a desire to empower others? Apply to be a Mentor. Do you desire to take ownership of your professional growth? Apply to be a Mentee.

Registration is always open for the MentorTech program. To get started, create a mentorship profile for either or both roles (mentor and mentee). If you’re matched, we’ll email you the next steps. If a match is not available, you’ll stay in the system until a match becomes available.

MentorTech-at-a-Glance

Through one-on-one experiences, participants will establish a professional partnership with a colleague outside their own department, leading to elevated horizons, strengthened leadership skills, and insightful connections for life and career.

My mentee is absolutely one of the best people I have ever met, and I can now also call her my friend. She has taught me to be objective, inquisitive, and compassionate regarding a cause. I hope I’ve helped her personally and professionally, but I know she’s helped me.”

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

1. Create a Mentorship Profile

Interested mentees or mentors should create a mentorship profile through our MentorCliq system. Registration takes about three minutes to complete and can be completed at any time of the year.

2. Respond to Mentorship Request

Based on your selected set of mentoring based competencies and a personality assessment, mentoring pairs are strategically matched to ensure a rich and transparent relationship. Successful pairings are notified via email. There is a possibility that you will not get matched.

3. Establish Mentee-Mentor Meetings

Once a match is made, the mentorship pair will meet to determine individual and collective professional goals and to establish a regular cadence of check-in meetings.

4. Co-Create Your Experience

As professional partners, you decide your time commitment. We recommend one hour per month but many commit more time. The mentoring relationship will last as long as the partners have a need and find value in the experience.

Although my mentee had a longer tenure at Georgia Tech, we were able to mutually agree upon building and establishing a vulnerable and transparent relationship where we confided with each other. I was able to provide career guidance, interview preparation best practices, performance and conflict management coaching, effective communication skills, professional development opportunities, and tips to effectively cultivate and establish professional interpersonal relationships.
