What is it?  Mentor Match, TAPPI’s new networking platform, connects students and young professionals (protégés) with experienced professionals (mentors) to share resources and experiences, and work together to achieve professional and personal goals. 


What’s in it for me? Mentors can help new engineers learn key technical concepts, identify useful technical resources, and give advice on career development.  Protégés can utilize Mentor Match to ask technical questions or seek advice on business interactions or career paths. 


Both Mentors and Protégé can sign-up anytime!


Why use Mentor Match? It offers a real world education that is often not available in academic settings, and creates connections that are not often available on job sites.


What is a Protégé? A young professional or student.


What is a Mentor? A professional with 5+ years job experience that is willing to help guide and enlighten future industry experts - or a young professional that wants to help a student navigate the transition to their career. 


How long does this match last?  Mentor Matches will be connected for approximately six months and participants can communicate however they choose; through TAPPI Connect, phone, Skype or email. 


What time commitment is involved?  We recommend that mentors and protégés spend one hour per month communicating.
