(FOR PROGRAM MEMBERS)
It's important to communicate with your mentor or mentee throughout your mentorship journey:
Before the session: share links to websites, portfolios, any documents you want reviewed, or files/images/folders, and to give them some context about your situation.
During the session: jot down any notes and ideas that come up, using the DISCUSSION feature. And all messages and files shared during the session will be saved here to your Messaging tab:
After the session: follow up and prep for the next sessions.
And you can do so with the Messaging feature on your Dashboard:
⚠️ Note: your Messaging will be empty unless:
a message thread has been created between a mentee and mentor who have a booking together
your Program Manager wrote you via Messaging, in which case you'll see a message thread created between you and your Program Manager.
