Find out more about the upcoming IDS online mentoring and how you can be a featured mentor
|3 Jan 2019|
In preparation for the launch of IDS's online mentoring (expected early Spring 2019) you can now sign up to be a featured mentor.
Once the mentoring module launched online members of the IDS alumni website (IDS students and alumni) will be able to search for and find people to ask for careers support. When they conduct a search the results will show those who have volunteered to help 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
