About Mentor Match

Welcome!

This unique online networking and career development tool helps you find, connect and share experiences with others. Your mentor or mentee can be in the same city or on the other side of the state. Apply by following these simple steps:

Step 1 – JOIN

Make selections for each of the program demographics to set your preferences. Demographics include: venue, specialties or areas of interest, career stage and start/end date. Please note that some fields are required for enrollment.

The more information you provide, the easier it will be to make the best match. Keep in mind in order to request a mentor or mentee, you must be enrolled in the program.

Step 5 – CONNECT

Congratulations! You're all set. You completed steps 1-4 and are now ready for the fun stuff. Let the mentoring begin. Do one search or multiple searches. If you're unsure of the search criteria, select "Search for ALL of the selected values." The EMERGING BANK LEADER Mentor Match Program Directory will do the work for you and populate the results.

Next click on the member's name that you're interested in establishing a mentor/mentee connection with. The link will bring you to their profile page. Look around. If you think it's a desired match, look under their profile image for the blue Mentor Match badge, which when clicked will you allow you to request a connection. If it's not a desired match, you can simply select the back button to return to your previous search results.
