Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the Mentor program?

The Mentor program is available to any SAE member and is tailored to each mentor or mentee to the length and type of relationship desired. Mentors and mentees must apply, and are then matched up to work together. 

2. How and when do I sign up?

Mentors and mentees complete their mentoring profiles to indicate what subjects they would like mentoring in and other characteristics they are looking for. Once complete, you can search the mentor and mentee profiles to request that you be matched.

3. Does my match have to be local?

No, you can be matched with a member from across the globe. Just indicate your preferred communication method,  phone, Skype, email, or whatever you like, to get started.

4. Why should I participate?

Acting as a mentor or mentee provides the opportunity to grow in your career, network and share your knowledge. Not only will you be gaining professional skills, but you will be giving back to our industry and the next generation.
