Applications for the SIOP Practitioner Mentoring Program Are Due January 31

The SIOP Career and Professional Development for Practitioners subcommittee is proud to have launched the fourth year of the SIOP Practitioner Mentoring Program. This program matches practitioners earlier in their careers with more experienced practitioners with the goal of accelerating career growth and development of those being mentored.

“The SIOP Practitioner Mentoring Program allowed me to build a genuine connection with an industry I-O that I likely never would have met otherwise. As someone later in his career, in a different industry, and in a different area of I-O, Rick was able to provide an alternative perspective while supporting me in exploring my long-term career goals.” – Sophie K., 2023 protégé

The program is open to all SIOP practitioner members. If you would like to serve as a mentor or work with a mentor, consider applying on the SIOP website. Applications are due Wednesday, January 31, 2024.

Some key points about the program:

  • The mentoring program is pair based, with one mentor working with one protégé.
  • The program is 10 months in duration, kicking off in March and concluding in December.
  • Participants should plan on meeting (virtually) for about 2 hours per month.
  • Prospective protégés need to be employed in the field of I-O psychology and preferably in their current role for at least 6 months.
  • Prospective mentors should have at least 5 years of professional experience in the field.
  • Participants will be matched based on the protégé’s stated goals for mentoring and the mentor’s strengths. They are also matched based on career track.
