Beginning in 2003, the Student Services Committee of HRACO has been coordinating a mentoring program with central-Ohio university HR students. These HR students (both undergraduate HR majors and graduate MLHRs) are looking for HRACO professionals willing to volunteer as their HR mentors and to assist these HR students with their professional development. HRACO members are urged to participate, by becoming a mentor for a protégé HR student.
As mentors, HRACO members have the unique opportunity to help enrich the experience of a young HR professional and to help guide them in making career and professional development decisions. By advising and sharing your knowledge and experiences with an HR student, you will be able to improve your coaching and leadership skills, and actively contribute to the strength and future of the workforce entering your profession.
Through a simple matching process, HRACO mentors will be paired up with a highly motivated HR student attending such schools as Ohio State, Franklin, and Capital.
The Mentoring FAQs summarizes details about HRACO Student Mentoring Program, including our history, requirements, guidelines and suggestions. The HRACO Student Mentoring Program FAQs will address many questions you may have regarding expectations of the mentor and the student protégé relationship. Generally, the relationship is determined on a case-by-case basis that works well for both the mentor and the student. Once the matching process is completed, the student protégé will be asked to contact their HRACO mentor, so a mutually agreed-upon plan can be co-developed.
The Program runs from October 1 – April 30 each year. By submitting your application, you agree to commit to fulfill the expectations and requirements of this program.
