Become a Mentor: IAM Mentoring for Professionals 2017 – 2018

“Your network is your net worth! 

In June 2014, IAM launched this initiative to support the professional growth and development of blooming professionals, career changers & recent college graduates. As part of this initiative, IAM pairs blooming professionals with seasoned professionals. Through IAM, participants learn first-hand how to manage and maximize their mentor relationships to advance their professional development.

IAM works to support your growth by providing opportunities to connect with established professionals who will provide young professionals with access to REAL resources and connections!  As part of our mentoring model, IAM strongly believes in paying it forward. Through giving back, participants further engage in the mission of IAM, the community at large and themselves.
