CPI Mentor Program

Register now for the 2021 CPI Mentor Program!

Who can participate?

Any member of Career Professionals of Iowa can participate. If you are unsure about your membership status, please view our member institutions or email cpi@iowa-cpi.org.

Who qualifies as a mentee or mentor?

Mentees can be in any stage of their professional journey. Mentors should have 4+ years of experience in career services.

Can I be a mentee and a mentor?

Yes! To be a mentee and a mentor, make sure to fill out registration forms for both roles.

How big of a commitment is this?

We recommend that mentors and mentees meet for one hour, once per month from March-December 2021. Summer participation is suggested, but not required.

How are mentors and mentees matched?

The CPI Mentor Program Committee will match mentors with mentees based on the information provided in the registration surveys. Matches will be released in early March, and the CPI Mentor Program officially kicks off on March 15!

How will I meet with my mentor/mentee?

It is your preference how you and your mentor/mentee meet, but we recommend video calls on the platform of your choice.

What will we talk about?

Mentees are responsible for leading the one-on-one meetings. Participants may follow the CPI discussion guide (topic and question suggestions) or choose their own conversation topics.
