experienced person (the mentor)
and a less experienced person, such as a         Competition Events
student or new employee (the mentee), in
which the mentor provides guidance, support,
feedback, and skill instruction to the mentee.

•Mentoring enables the student
to learn about the industry and the workplace
from a competent worker or executive who has
a record of achievement in the particular
occupational field.

•Students generally receive no pay for
mentoring activities unless they are new
employees in the mentor’s workplace.

•A mentor may also work with a group of
mentees rather than with just one individual.

•Mentoring may be combined with other WBL
programs such as internship and service
