2014-2015 Halton Mentoring Program
Registration Open September 1st - 30th

 

It gives us great pleasure to introduce HRPA's new Mentoring partner, MentorCity. The team at MentorCity is dedicated to providing you with the best digital mentoring experience - from profile creation to Mentor selection, chat options and group discussions, this program makes it easier! To create a detailed profile, you can upload your credentials directly from LinkedIn.

​Sometimes, you just need a little advice and encouragement, no matter where you are in your career. That's why we've kept the option for Members to sign up to be a mentee and mentor. Just select the appropriate box. 

Mentees can search for their perfect Mentor Match based on skills, industry, experience, or language preference. What's not to love?

Sound enticing? Here is your official invitation, exclusive to HRPA Halton Members:
