Mentoring can help you progress along your career journey, whether you are being mentored or serving as one. Studies show that Mentees experience more career advancement, greater compensation, and a deeper feeling of job satisfaction. Likewise, Mentors experience more job commitment and career fulfillment.
To foster these valued career outcomes, ASCB has launched Mentor Match—a member-only online tool that includes a searchable database to facilitate mentoring relationships. A feature of ASCB’s Online Community, Mentor Match is user-driven and allows registered Mentees to search among registered Mentors whose experience and expertise match areas in which they wish to be mentored. Likewise, registered Mentors can search for and identify potential Mentees.

“The mentoring relationship can be mutually beneficial where each person can learn a new way of thinking, expand their knowledge and skills, and build their professional networks,” said Ashanti Edwards, ASCB’s Director of Professional Development. “These benefits add value professionally and generally lead to career advancement.”
