Mentorship

    PMI Northern Utah Chapter's goal in its Mentoring Programs is to create a mutually beneficial environment to positively share education, wisdom, and career experiences with another individual that can benefit from the direct and personal interaction.

    The assigned mentor will:

    • Provide LIMITED guidance and direction for studying for a PMI exam.  This is intended to clarify concepts for the mentee, give perspective and experience to concepts that may be difficult to understand, or provide general tips for the exam.  This does NOT replace the PMP Prep Program, paid exam preparation, or exam guides.  The mentor is not there to help pass an exam but rather to help if struggling with a specific concept.
    • Provide an expert opinion on project work if assistance is needed.
    • Provide information concerning PMI-Northern Utah and the ways you can become involved.
    • Offer advice concerning marketable skills in a specific industry.
    • Provide encouragement, understanding, and an environment where you can discuss goals, ideas, or even frustrations to receive guidance from an experienced professional.


    This program is designed to be beneficial to the mentor and the mentee but it will only be as effective as the effort put forth by BOTH parties.  Please be sure that you can commit to this level of interaction or time before volunteering to participate. 

    PMI-Northern Utah is an organization that likes to pay it forward, give back to others in their community, and be present to help others.  This is another way to provide good moral and ethical stewardship of the resources we have and their sustainability in to the future. 

    Please consider joining the program today!
