Navigate Your Career Path with the
ISSX Mentorship Program

A complimentary benefit exclusively for members of ISSX, the ISSX Mentorship Program will provide an enriching opportunity for graduate students and newer investigators to be matched with more senior scientists within and across career pathways to discuss career options, review competencies for success, consider challenges and problems, and receive practical advice from experienced scientists.

Both prospective mentors and mentees will create a custom profile in the ISSX Mentorship Program portal. When registration closes, the system will use a Nobel Prize winning algorithm to evaluate all possible matches and optimize matches across the entire pool. Individuals then develop their mentoring relationships and work together to achieve mentoring goals. The mentoring portal provides the right structure, support, and guidance to help these relationships succeed. ISSX provides the mechanism, checkpoints, templates, logs, midpoint review tools, and more.

Benefits for Mentors:

Mentoring is a personal and professional development experience that challenges one to reflect on their own actions and behaviors over time. For those who have benefited from a helpful mentor in their lives or careers, there is often a strong drive to pay this forward to others by serving in the same role. The act of helping someone develop, grow, and navigate life and career obstacles is incredibly rewarding. 

 

Benefits for Mentees:

Mentees benefit from the knowledge and experience of their mentors. By becoming a mentee in the program, you will gain access to senior scientists within and across career pathways to discuss career options, review competencies for success, consider challenges and problems, and share practical advice for your future.

Finding a true mentor is not always easy. The ISSX Mentorship Program can help and we are proud to offer this new valuable resource and opportunity for new relationships to begin.
