What is Mentoring?
Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger than the person being mentored, but they have a certain area of expertise which will help and support the mentee.
How will it work?

During this initial contact, you will provides your mentor an overview of your desired outcome of mentoring, which is fundamental in ensuring you have the right mentor.
