Attention all new and entry-level UK hospitality, leisure and tourism managers and recent hospitality graduates! Would you like one-to-one support with your career development from an experienced hospitality manager? The Institute’s new Mentor Me programme introduces mentees to mentors who hold Member (MIH) or Fellow (FIH) status and want to share their industry expertise.
Mentor Me is made up of 6 monthly ‘chats’ – from October 2015 to April 2016 – where you talk with your mentor about your career goals along with some hospitality and career topics. These informal meetings are confidential and focus on career growth and skills development – yours and your mentor’s. There could even be some ‘reverse mentoring’ happening where your mentor learns from you! Free mentoring materials help guide the process.
Mentor Me can help you:
- get focused;
- develop a professional relationship with an industry expert located outside your current business; and
- discover what the hospitality industry can do for you and your career.
The meetings last an hour and the Institute provides the mentoring materials via a monthly email. It couldn’t be simpler to invest in your future and meet a more senior hospitality professional who’s been in your shoes and understands the challenges of a new career.
The Mentor Me application form is easy so don’t wait, sign-up today at Mentor Me. We’ve got mentors waiting to help you!
