WICT Rocky Mountain’s Award-Winning Mentoring Program is for any entry/mid-level professional who is ready to jump-start their career under the advisement and encouragement of a mentor. Mentees are paired with an industry veteran who will work closely with them to help establish their goals and share personal knowledge and their experiences to guide them down the path to success.
Over the course of four monthly sessions, the program’s primary focus is on “Building Your Brand.” You will meet as a group with our moderators, The Moxy Labs, to educate and assist you on your own personal and professional brand development and go into the specifics on why personal and professional brands are important and how to continually improve them. We also teach the essentials of personal and professional elevator pitches for specific situations such as interviews, meeting with higher-level peers, or while networking, which allows you to hone public speaking skills by experimenting and practicing in a safe space.
To ensure program success, mentors and mentees are expected to connect one-on-one at least once a month and attend all group sessions. Group sessions will be held in the Tech Center; however, we are prepared to meet virtually if it is regarded as necessary.
Fall session registration is officially open! The group sessions kick off on Wednesday, August 12 and will run through November 11. Anyone interested in being a mentee or mentor must complete the application by Friday, July 17, 2020.
