Mentorship Program

The MVHRMA Mentor Program provides guidance to less experienced human resource practitioners and students majoring in HR. The MVHRMA Mentor Program has been created to address those needs by offering a way for mentors and protégés to locate each other.

Benefits of a Mentor Program

The Mentor Program provides opportunities for students and protégés to:

  • Explore the world of work through interaction with a HR professional

  • Apply textbook concepts to real life situations and gain knowledge from an experienced HR professional’s perspective

  • Develop and encourage personal and professional growth

  • Realize the value of networking

The Mentor Program benefits professionals by allowing them to:

  • Contribute to the professional development of the future HR workforce

  • Identify potential employees for their own organization

  • Help students and protégés begin successful careers

  • Give something back to the HR profession
