OATUG Emerging Leaders: Mentee Guide

Program Purpose:

The OATUG Emerging Leaders Mentorship program is an opportunity for young and new professionals to guide their professional and career goals with an OATUG mentor. Mentees will be matched with a mentor that will help them set goals in areas such as networking, career aspiration, being a new manager, or general professional development guidance in the applications and technology space. The program is open to current OATUG members and undergraduate students. It is designed to help facilitate guidance, support, and achievement among OATUG members and within the applications and technology space. Mentoring is founded on a reciprocal and comfortable relationship and is mutually beneficial to both mentee and mentor.
