FAQ for professionals
How does mentoring work on AlgoMe?
With AlgoMe Careers you have the opportunity to become a professional mentor and a mentee, both of which can be valuable tools to manage and build you career, as well as to develop your own professional network.
Using the information entered on your profile and your preference of being a mentor or mentee, our algorithms will match you with other members with similar professional interests and an appropriate level of experience.
Once both you and the other member have accepted a mentoring match, you will be given advice on how to get the most out of the relationship and will be able to contact each other through AlgoMail (our internal messaging system), or by email, phone or in person should you chose to share your details.
Can my mentor/mentee see my profile?
Can I have multiple mentoring relationships?
What can I expect from my mentor?
As mentoring is an informal arrangement with no specific obligations, it is down to both the mentor and mentee to agree how to make it most beneficial, and both members should be considerate of the time and effort each is prepared to commit. Once matched AlgoMe will provide advice on how best to develop and sustain the relationship with your mentor.
What do mentors have to gain?
Many of our mentors also value the satisfaction of helping to develop the next generation of talent and being able to pass on the benefit of hard earnt professional experience.
Why am I not getting any mentoring matches?
Also make sure that you’ve told us you’re interested to “be a mentor” and/or “receive mentoring” in the Mentoring section of your dashboard – we only propose mentoring matches to members that have indicated they are interested in them.
We are constantly working to grow the AlgoMe community and to encourage more members to engage in mutually beneficial mentoring relationships. We only propose the most appropriate mentoring matches for your skills and career aspirations and new matches are made on a daily basis as the community grows.
