As a Black professional, navigating the job market can be a daunting experience. But, with the right guidance and support, you can achieve your career goals and make meaningful progress in your professional journey. That’s where mentorship comes in.
What is Cultivate mentorship?
Mentorship is a relationship between two or more individuals where a seasoned professional shares their expertise and knowledge with a less experienced mentee. Mentorship programs, such as the CULTIVATE Mentorship Program presented by RBC Future Launch, pair young Black professionals with mentors in the tech and business sector, allowing mentees to build a more robust career development pathway.
Glenn Singh, Customer Success Manager at Black Professionals in Tech Network and one of the leads of the CULTIVATE Mentorship Program, highlights some of the key benefits of mentorship for mentees:
“As a mentee, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with someone who has already gone through their career journey. Remember that their journeys may differ, but the transferable skills learned from each mentor are extremely valuable.“
Benefits of Mentorship for Mentees:
- Develop your skills
- Grow your network
- Build your confidence
- Find success in your career
How does CULTIVATE address job market challenges?
The job market can be challenging for young Black professionals, particularly in a post-pandemic world. The CULTIVATE Mentorship Program addresses some of these challenges by providing mentees with trusted information and guidance on topics such as hybrid work models, remote work, and navigating office dynamics.
