Format
4 months - minimum 8 meetings / 1 hour per meeting;
Suggestion: Monthly sessions, can be adjusted according to mentor and mentee schedules and needs.
After 4 months, the program can be renewed if both mentor and mentee agree on that, with personal administration.
If the mentor or mentee does not see the engagement as productive, or that they can achieve the goals set in the first meeting, either of them can ask for a change or to cancel the engagement.
Suggested Roadmap

Session 1:
introductions
interview: background check, try and make questions about skills, hobbies, values, wishes, etc. This can be used to map profiles to roles and industries.
set expectations about the timeline, number of sessions, goals, what is possible to achieve with the mentorship program
Session 2:
explain career paths in IT, focus on the target industry, and map profile
try not to say what should do, but rather explain why, in your opinion, that path seems more suitable for her.
After every session
Evaluate motivation and rapport
Are you on the right path?
Does the mentee believe you are on the right path?
Is there something that can be improved in the mentor-mentee relationship?
Do you, as a mentor, need any help from Beela Staff?
