Learn About Petrean Mentoring
A Petrean mentor is a more experienced Petrean professional who shares his or her skills, knowledge, experience and expertise on an agreed regular basis. They can help to examine career goals and decisions; advise about any professional challenges the mentee may face; offer constructive criticism and feedback, and generally help the mentee to reach their potential at work. They may also provide introductions to useful contacts.
