Welcome to the online mentoring network used by the 1st CUNY-wide Mentoring Initiative!
- Create an account (needed to post in forum, and access mentoring partner profiles) here. Recommended approach is to login using your LinkedIn account.
- Customize your mentoring preferences here
- Update and submit your profile for membership approval (also required to access mentoring partner profiles). If you had signed up using LinkedIn as recommended, you may directly request membership into the mentoring network. Otherwise, show more here
a) To update your profile, login and first go to the upper right menu that says “Howdy, (Your Name),” and then click “Edit My Profile” as shown in the picture
b) Click on the “Edit” link in the line under the “Profile” section
c) You may now add in your profile information from LinkedIn, résumé, or write your own profile based on what you’d like your potential mentoring partner to see in the “Profile for Membership Approval” content section. You can see a sample profile here. (Tip: If copying and pasting from LinkedIn, then sign out first and search for your own profile under LinkedIn to have less formatting to clean up later when copying.)
d) Next, click on the “Save Changes” button to complete your profile update.
e) Finally, submit your profile for membership approval by emailing the network coordinator.
Congrats! If you’ve completed these steps, you will have successfully submitted your profile for approval to gain membership into the mentoring network. You should be receiving further notifications within 1-3 business days. The sooner you gain membership, the faster you can connect with mentoring partners – first come, first served for mentoring partner picks!
