Talent Connect Mentorship Program

A Talent Connect Session is a session held on a weekly basis for all Andelans joining a new client engagement. 

The Community team schedules these sessions and invites mentors to speak with Andelans who have little or no prior knowledge of working with Andelan clients and share tips on being successful on an engagement.

These sessions are held via Zoom and have helped improve the client-talent onboarding experience for mentees, provided mentees an opportunity to gain insights into what to expect through their client journey and how to plan to achieve optimum performance. Ultimately, it has created a safe space for answers to burning questions before mentees kick off their opportunity.

As the number of talents onboarding each week grows, the Community team is calling for more volunteers to lead these sessions and you can be part of this mentorship program by signing up!
