You’ll use your email address and then create a password. Next, you’ll be presented with questions about yourself. It’s important to answer these questions as thoroughly as possible to ensure you are connected with the right person. For detailed information on how to set up your profile in Qooper use this link.
If you already have an established relationship in the NACE Mentor Program, you can do a search to find your mentor or mentee in Qooper on the Mentoring tab. Check with your mentor/mentee to be sure they’ve signed up.
Mentors should have significant experience in the field, expertise in leadership, communication skills, strategic decision making, organizational skills, and resource management, and the ability to provide insights into the profession to guide the mentee.
Mentees may be those new to the career services or university relation and recruiting fields; those who would like to develop a richer business acumen; or those changing fields.
