About Speed Mentoring:Speed mentoring is a series of short, focused conversations about specific questions. You will meet with a limited number of mentees in 10‐minute time slots each. When directed, mentees will proceed to their mentor’s table. At the start and end of each Speed Mentoring round, a bell will ring. Mentees will then proceed to the next mentor table. There will be two minutes to switch and prepare for the next round. Not all mentors will meet with all mentees.

After a brief introduction, the mentee will give his/her elevator pitch. In general, mentees should share:
Name, Major / Degree, Skills, Awards / Achievements, Successful projects, Career Aspirations, and Goals. 
(taken from http://www.uccs.edu/Documents/alumni/mentor_guide.pdf)

We offer the following as a recommended guideline:

  • Mentors are people who have a significant experience (8+ years in learning and development) and hold a senior role.
  • Mentees are individuals who are new to their role in learning and development and looking for the next step in their career.
