About Your Mentor Relationship

LGJS Mentors come from all walks of life, with years of experience – both in and out of work, as employees, bosses, as business owners, as consultants, etc. Even though you have a primary Mentor, oftentimes he/she will bring in other Mentors to assist if they feel another Mentor can help address some of your questions or challenges.

A couple of reminders about how Mentors may engage with Job Seekers:

  • Mentors will keep your personal information confidential, but they may also confidentially discuss your situation with other Mentors in the program to get their input and advice on your behalf.
  • Mentors are volunteers, not professional counselors, therapists, pastors, physicians, lawyers, or financial advisors. They may not give or receive medical, psychological, legal, or financial advice or engage in any business activity with a Job Seeker.
  • All mentoring services can be done only in public places, never in private homes or motor vehicles. Please do not ask to socialize with any Mentor or meet with a Mentor outside of the purpose of the program.
  • Mentors may not provide a formal job referral or skills‐related endorsement to Job Seekers, nor may they advise a Job Seeker on which job offer to accept or decline.
  • Do not expect your Mentor to re-write your resume, LinkedIn profile, cover letter, etc. They will guide you and provide feedback, but you own the job search and the associated work.
  • Mentors may not give or receive any business or compensation from anyone for services provided to any Seeker.
  • Any questions or complaints about a Mentor should be directed to the Mentor Advisory Committee for review.
  • If a Job Seeker violates any of the above guidelines, or those in the Seeker Guidelines you received and signed upon joining the Program, your participation in the Program may be may terminated.
