Having a Mentor to assist you in your job search lets you tap into learning that has gone before you. Much learning happens not through the internet or books, but through real world experience. Without a Mentor, it often occurs only by trial and error.
The Aliyah Job Center will try and help identify suitable mentors for immigrants who are in the very final stages of their Aliyah process.
Wherever possible we shall try and seek a match based on your professional interest age, geographical location.
Typically the process can start 2 - 3 weeks before or after making Aliyah and is something you will need to discuss and arrange with your Employment Advisor.
Mentoring is defined as a caring relationship between an experienced and a less experienced person in which the mentor provides guidance, advice, support, and feedback.
Successful mentoring involves a dynamic process whereby each participant learns to respect and trust the partner's commitment, expertise, and individuality. A firm commitment to the mentoring process and a willingness to invest time and energy are the most important components for a successful relationship. Mentoring is in many ways an elusive concept and an individual process.
Every mentoring relationship is unique because each partner's experience, personality, and professional development track will differ.
Benefits that may accrue in a mentoring relationship can include:
· Kick-starting and managing your job search
· Empowering the job search experience
· Interview preparation and debrief
· Identifying your transferable skills
· Making more of your strengths
· Developing your networking skills
· Expanding your personal network
· A source of referrals
