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 to remain in touch, or try to reschedule meetings for a later date.

People who use mentors are more successful than those without mentors,
and that's substantiated by academic research. They get more promotions,
make more money, 
and have more career and job satisfaction. - Success
