What does it mean to be a Mentor?
Mentorship is the process where an experienced worker (mentor) works with and educates a less experienced worker (student) to help foster skill development and professional growth. The mentor shares his/her skills, knowledge, techniques, best practices, and experience to provide a comprehensive hands-on training experience for the student.
Deciding to become a mentor is an important step to invest in your future. Sharing your knowledge and skills will have a huge impact on industry workforce planning and longevity.
