Am I ready to be a mentor?

We hear quite often that people believe that they aren't "good enough" to be a mentor. Usually, that's incorrect. Nonetheless, we wanted to give you a little checklist.

You need some time

We are flexible in how much time you want to invest. Depending on what you provide, this can be between 5 minutes per day and some hours per week, but you need to make time for that commitment.

You need to show up

The #1 reason why people love our mentorships is because people care for them and are available. If you can't commit to checking in once per day or two, this might not be for you.

Your experience counts

We have found that mentorships work best if people bring a bit of industry experience with them. If you are coming straight out of school, let's wait for a bit.

You don't need a fancy degree

Our mentoring team includes high school dropouts and PhDs, Junior Web Devs and Senior Product Managers. We're open to anyone if we feel like you can help people.

Being open and empathic

You'll meet people from all sorts of backgrounds and situations. There is no space for elitism or judgement. Being open and understanding people's needs is a must.

Is this for me?

If you are unsure, just let us do the work and apply. We pride ourselves with being open, inclusive and honest. The least you can get out of this is growth and some feedback.

Your Way to Becoming a Mentor

We are continuously tweaking our recruitment process to ensure quality of our mentors. When you apply to become a mentor, you'll usually go through the following steps.

Application & Vetting

You fill out the application form, we will thoroughly review it and see if you'd fit our wide-ranging mentorship team.

Onboarding & Start

We will get you up and running. You'll meet all mentors in the community and get access to best practises we've learned over time.

Mentoring & Evaluation

You'll receive your public profile and will start getting applications from mentees! We are sure you'll do well and will monitor your performance to help you.

How does the platform work?

We are taking a fresh, innovative stab at building mentorship relations, and it's normal for it to be confusing! This is how it all works.

Your public mentoring profile

As a mentor on MentorCruise, you will receive a public profile designating your price, what you are ready to do, what your experience is, together with some additional information.

In practice, how you mentor others is up to you – what's more important to us is that you can designate how much time and effort you want to invest. We know that you are busy and built MentorCruise with that in mind.

Choosing mentees wisely

It is absolutely in your control, who you are deciding to mentor and who you'd rather not work with at the time.

Mentees will fill out an application when reaching out for mentorship, stating their goal, expectation, background and more. Based on that information, you can decide whether to take them on as a mentee.

Work starts!

Apart from a few best practices, we do not have a framework for effective mentorship. The best part about MentorCruise is that each mentor solves problems differently, that makes this platform so great!

A mentorship always starts with a set goal. Your job is to help a mentee reach that goal. We will provide a small management dashboard, including a chat window and task manager, to communicate with your mentee, but any method or medium that works for you, works for us too.

What's in it for you?

We appreciate that you're taking the time to help other people grow! We're sure you'll appreciate the benefits being a MentorCruise mentor too!

Teaching = Learning

Mentoring is a good way to build skills in leadership, empathy and teaching. Employers love that!

Networking

You'll meet tons of new people. Maybe your next coworker or business partner is one of them?

Compensation

We love to see people mentoring others for free, but you can set a payment as well! It's a great way to keep everyone on track.

Meet your Peers

There's nothing better than having a strong support network. You'll be lucky to call our co-mentors your peers, as you share best practises in our small community, empower each others and grow immensely.
