Become an RCSA PEARL Mentor
Professional Emerging Aspiring Recruitment Leaders (PEARL) Mentoring program has been designed to support and provide emerging or new recruitment leaders with the opportunity to learn from fellow leaders within the industry.
Why join the PEARL program?
Become part of the PEARL mentoring community and provide an outside perspective on a variety of developmental issues leaders face today. As a Mentor you will be contributing to the well-being of the industry by passing on your own knowledge and experience to others through reflection of your own work practices.
In practical terms, your Mentee may want you to:
- listen carefully to the things that worry and excite them
- be a sounding board to help them develop and articulate their ideas
- provide unbiased guidance and support towards their individualised goals
- encourage them and celebrate their success
The mentoring relationship's main aim is to help the next generational leader improve their knowledge, networking savvy and perspectives within our industry. Mentors and Mentees are matched together based on their goals, objectives and professional background, who then meet on a regular (monthly) basis over the course of a year to discuss & plan how to actualise these goals.
How We Match Mentors & Mentees
To achieve a high standard Mentoring relationship, the process of matching Mentors to Mentees is all about the algorithm. Each participant completes an on-line questionnaire which incorporates questions covering professional, social and leadership preferences. Once an application profile is completed the profile-based algorithm draws on this information and searches for its potential-ideal match.
Final suggested matches are then reviewed by a committee of RCSA Members with previous experience in the mentoring program.
To be considered as a Mentor
, it is understood that you have:
• at least THREE years minimum recent experience within the recruitment industry; and
• are a current RCSA Individual membership or Corporate Member; and
