Mentorship Program

    Multiply

    Multiply is a year-long mentorship program to support growth and development of both the mentor and mentee. Through this program, mentee applicants will be matched with a mentor and encouraged to engage in monthly meetings to establish career track goals, work through current challenges, and be inspired to grow in their profession!

    Mentees will have the opportunity to glean knowledge of the industry, understand the inner workings of marketing and business development tracks, and to reach higher personal strategic goals and development. Mentors will have the opportunity to practice their management and leadership skills as well as share their knowledge of the A/E/C industry.

    All prospective Mentors and Mentees must complete an application form (see links below) and submit it along with a current resume that includes work history, educational background, special skills and interests, and any other relevant biographical information to Chris Imbeau at cimbeau@rafn.com by January 26, 2018. The information will assist the committee to match Mentor / Mentee pairs based upon experience, interest, and career tracks. On February 15th, attend the Multiply kickoff event to meet other program participants. Mentor / Mentee pairing will occur following the Multiply kickoff event.

    At the end of the year, the continuation of the pairing will be up to the individuals and not guided by SMPS. Mentors and mentees can sign up for another pairing each year if they wish. Applications are now available to participate in this exciting new program!
