Let’s Talk About:

The Case for Mentorship

Analisa Ortiz

By Analisa Ortiz, Recruiter

Ahh, The Great Reshuffle. It’s a tumultuous time – equal parts hopeful and stressful – which brings new challenges when it comes to attracting and retaining fabulous talent. We think an intentional mentorship program can help address both.

Some corners of the internet insist that “people don’t want to work,” but we hear from applicants all the time that this isn’t right. People are eager for meaningful work — to spend the professional portion of their one precious life growing, connecting with others, and contributing to a positive mission.

Our apprenticeship program fosters exactly that. We help early career talent and career changers accelerate their career and we create opportunities for our full-time folks to teach and mentor. Not only do they solidify their expertise, they get the good feels that come from helping others! Everyone is invested and deeply benefits from the increased engagement.

The deadline to apply for this year's apprenticeship program is August 7th. We look forward to hearing from you (and others in your network).
