January Is National Mentoring Month—Support the Industry as a Mentor

Every January, the U.S. celebrates the dedicated mentors whose wisdom, guidance, and positive examples help prepare people to succeed. You can join them by participating in the ASA Mentor Match program. According to ASA research, 68% of staffing professionals agree that mentors and coaches are critical to career advancement.

Mentor Match allows members to make valuable industry connections, define career goals, and gain insight from staffing peers. The goal of the program is to help members grow professionally and network with fellow ASA members.

The Mentor Match program runs in two six-month cycles per year (January–June and July–December). Once enrolled, ASA will match you with your mentor or mentee based on topics of expertise. Learn more at americanstaffing.net, or send an email to volunteer@americanstaffing.net.
