"I found the Mentorship Project to be very beneficial. I found the website and mentorship platform easy to use, and I was able to quickly connect with a mentor that was able to provide me guidance and support based on the competencies I selected. I would highly recommend the Mentorship Project to others; especially those new to the world of Career Development. To help those new to this field; I have signed on as a Mentor!
