Welcome to the Mentor Match Program
Are you ready to enhance your career as a Mentor or a Mentee? Follow the steps
below to join the Mentor Match Program.
1. Read the Program Overview:
The Mentor Match Program is an exclusive program for NYSSCPA members, which
benefits all who participate. The Mentor Match Program pairs early career professionals
with experienced professionals across the state.
Mentees receive invaluable guidance and perspective from established professionals,
which helps start their career off on the right foot or develop their career
to achieve professional goals.
Employees who received mentoring were
promoted five times more often
than people who didn’t have mentors. - Forbes
Mentors learn valuable insight from their mentees, and derive the satisfaction
of building a strong relationship with the next generation of CPAs while helping
guide them to success.
25% of mentees and 28% of mentors received a raise –
Versus only 5% of managers who were not mentors. - Forbes
CPAs with more than ten years of professional experience are invited to join
as mentors, and CPA Candidates or CPAs with less than ten years of professional
experience are invited to enroll as mentees. Because we offer promotions and
services through our Campus Liaisons, at this time, students members are not
invited to participate in the Mentor Match Program.
Mentors and mentees are required to meet at least once each month, at least
eight times during the course of the Mentor Match Program. Mentors and mentees
can meet in person, by phone, or using video chat.
During the Mentor Match Program, mentoring pairs will have be given discussion
topics and guidelines to help facilitate a productive and rewarding relationship
for both parties.
2. Check the Important Dates:
Enrollment for the Mentor Match Program opens on September 5, 2016 and closes
on September 26, 2016.
The Mentor Match Program begins on October 1, 2016, and ends on June 1, 2017.
Mentors and mentees are asked to meet at least once each month, at least eight
times during the course of the Mentor Match Program. It is understood that meetings
may need to be canceled or rescheduled during busy season. Please do your best

People who use mentors are more successful than those
and that's substantiated by academic research. They get more promotions,
make more money, and have more career and job satisfaction. - Success
