COVID-19 Update: Our Network Up mentors are continuing to support job seekers during this time by meeting with virtually or by phone with their mentees. If you are looking for a way to volunteer your time, and to help someone looking for a job, even during social distancing, Network Up great opportunity.
Are You (or a friend or colleague) Ready To Help Someone Network Up?
Network Up is a short-term mentoring program that matches under- or un-employed men or women with a volunteer mentor. Mentors and mentees meet two to five times at a local coffee shop or café for a conversation focused on helping the mentee create or expand his/her professional network; and establish a career strategy and job search plan. We especially need mentors who work or have worked in the following fields: health care; law; non-profits; IT.
Mentors provide a wealth of experience, knowledge, and networking connections to help mentees land — and succeed in — the right job for them!
Are You Eligible to be a Mentor? You Must Be:
- An established professional living in the Northern Virginia area
- Looking for an opportunity to become involved in your community
- Interested in helping people develop their professional goals and networking connections
- Willing to use your expertise and knowledge to help someone advance their career
Network Up is NOT a job placement program. Rather, it is a workforce development opportunity designed to help someone achieve their career goals.
