PeppConnect Spring Mentoring Launch
One of the many ways PeppConnect can help you expand your network is through the mentorship program. Over 1,100 students and alumni are requesting mentoring by Pepperdine Alumni. You can offer to be a mentor, or even request a mentor of your own by logging in to PeppConnect and updating your profile and mentoring settings! Our Mentor Matching program will begin auto-matching mentors and mentees based on your profile starting in mid-February, or find your select your own by industry, location, or job function. You'll find steps below on how to find or become a mentor!
Let's log-in! Create your PeppConnect account with Google, or sync your Linkedin profile upon registration. Then set up or review your profile and make any updates, if you haven't already. Scroll down to complete the "Offer Help" and "Seek Help" sections. This will tell us if you're looking for a mentor or offering to be a mentor!
Once your profile is complete, you're ready to begin. Using the menu on the left-hand side, navigate to the PeppConnect Mentoring portal and use filters to find a mentor or mentee within a particular industry, company, or job function.
Need any help? Our Mentoring AI can match you with a mentor or mentee! Get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information and assistance.
Found the right person? It's time to connect. Once your offer to connect has been accepted by your mentor or mentee, your connection will begin. You'll find your mentor or mentee under the "mentoring relationships" section of the portal. You can use PeppConnect to direct message your connection, as well as set up video calls, or in-person meetings. You are free to connect as long as you wish, and Alumni Affairs recommends establishing a timeline of availability with your mentor or mentee for clarity.
If your relationship concludes, it's time to hop back into PeppConnect to "complete" the relationship. This will tell us it's time to hear your story of success! We can't wait to hear about your experience.
