About eMentoring
A critical component of professional growth, eCareerMentor helps emerging and seasoned professionals connect.  eMentoring gives our members a way to contribute to the food science and technology industry by sharing their professional insight and practical career advice with aspiring food science professionals.   By acting as professional role models, trusted friends and career advisors, mentors can make a significant contribution to their communities.  Who better to offer guidance, than seasoned professionals in the food science and technology industry?

How eMentoring Works
This virtual match up service offers an easy way for mentors and mentees to connect.  eCareerMentor provides a flexible time commitment depending upon the needs of the mentee and availability of the mentor.  Mentors complete a profile including what assistance they can give. Individuals seeking guidance can search the mentor profiles and complete a Mentee profile to request an engagement. Mentees initiate engagements. Mentors are able to approve, approve with changes or decline the engagement.
