"The mentor program helped me focus and set career goals that I have never thought about or considered before."
"Some things you can't learn or understand just by reading, you have to have someone with prior experience explain it to you. The Mentor Program is that mediator. As simple as, sharing perspectives and thoughts will appeal and challenge your knowledge base."
"As a new employee, I can say without a doubt that I think all new employees should participate in the mentorship program! My mentor introduced me to so many new people and helped me navigate my way through a lot of situations, acquainting me with the EITS norms!"
"The mentor program is an excellent way to acquire greater insight into the breadth of the duties and responsibilities of the various units within EITS and has proved to be an enlightening experience."
"Getting the perspective of leadership in an informal setting is extremely valuable and I have been able to use my understanding of that perspective to improve my own work and relationship with coworkers."
"This program is the most gratifying experience I have had in my tenure with EITS. As a mentor, I learned as much as I passed along to my protege."
"The EITS Mentorship has provided me with a fresh and positive perspective of our organization. It gives people a chance to get out of their microcosm and learn about the other unique groups, people, and projects in EITS. I highly recommend this rewarding program to anyone willing to gain a refreshing new view or their workplace."
"The EITS mentorship program is great! You might think it is very formal or takes up a lot of time, but I just finished up a six month mentor partnership and it was very worthwhile. There are all kinds of activities that can be used to create an action plan — so go for it!"
"One of the things I liked about the program was having someone outside of my usual team that I could go to and ask questions or share ideas with. Participation in the Mentor Program gave me a feeling of pride in working in EITS and the knowledge that I am a part of a bigger whole."
"It was an honor and a pleasure to have been a mentor. My protege and I were able to connect on a level that went beyond our normal work day relationship. Being able to talk with someone who is on the same path is helpful from a mentor point of view in that you see your own experiences in a different light. It was encouraging, uplifting and an great experience I will always remember."
