Welcome to the Mentor Match Program

 

We are no longer accepting applications for the Mentor Match program this year. 
Thank you to all who applied.

Are you ready to enhance your career as a Mentor or a Mentee? Follow the steps below to join the Mentor Match Program.

 
1. Read the Program Overview:

The Mentor Match Program is an exclusive program for NYSSCPA members, which benefits all who participate. The Mentor Match Program pairs early career professionals with experienced professionals across the state.

Mentees receive invaluable guidance and perspective from established professionals, which helps start their career off on the right foot or develop their career to achieve professional goals.

 

"The value of a mentor who can help cultivate leadership skills one-on-one in real-time, reduce the anxiety in taking big steps, and focus leaders on achieving their goals - is huge." - Forbes

Mentors learn valuable insight from their mentees, and derive the satisfaction of building a strong relationship with the next generation of CPAs while helping guide them to success. 

 
"79% of Millennials see mentoring as crucial to their career success." – Huffington Post 

CPAs with more than ten years of professional experience are invited to join as mentors, and CPA Candidates or CPAs with less than ten years of professional experience are invited to enroll as mentees. Because we offer promotions and services through our Campus Liaisons, at this time, students members are not invited to participate in the Mentor Match Program.

Mentors and mentees are required to meet at least once each month, at least eight times during the course of the Mentor Match Program. Mentors and mentees can meet in person, by phone, or using video chat.

During the Mentor Match Program, mentoring pairs will have be given discussion topics and guidelines to help facilitate a productive and rewarding relationship for both parties.
