1. Create a Profile on MicroMentor
A complete profile is the first step to connecting with others. It lets people know who you are and why you are here. The quality of your profile greatly affects your impression on those you are trying to connect with.
2. Reach Out to Others and Connect
Explore other members who have the profile you're looking for. Reach out by sending messages to several members. Start a conversation and find the right fit for you.
3. Start Mentoring
Now that you've found a match ask questions, share, and listen. Agree on how and when to communicate using email, video chat, or a phone call. Set goals and start solving problems together!
In the people search, you will notice that other members of your community may also be on MicroMentor. You will know if another user is in your network when their profile says "Mercy Corps Northwest" (see image for example).
If you would like to connect with somebody in the wider global MicroMentor community, there are thousands of other members to choose from.
