Find out how you can be a featured mentor
Online members of the IDS alumni website (IDS students and alumni) are able to search for and find people to ask for careers support. When they conduct a search the results will show those who are featured mentors at the top of the list, and all other online profiles that match the criteria underneath this. The results will not show people who have opted out (temporarily or permanently), mentors who have restricted their number of interactions and who have reached their limit, or people who do not meet the search criteria.
If you match the search of an online member looking for help you will receive a personal message from them with a series of options of how to respond (example below).
By clicking on one of the links you will be able to communicate your decision back to the IDS alumni office. If you reply to say you can’t help either temporarily or permanently this will automatically change your settings in your alumni website profile.
If you have any questions about online mentoring please contact the IDS alumni office
