Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to complete an application to be a mentor?
Yes, to participate, you must complete a Mentor profile. If you have a small amount of time to give for a regular phone call or video chat with a fellow transportation professional, you will be surprised how much you get out of the experience!
Are there membership or professional requirements to be a mentor?
Mentor match is designed to connect transportation professionals with individuals new to the industry. Mentors must be WTS International members in good standing. Mentors should be transportation professionals with at least 7 years of industry experience and be willing to offer advice, suggestions, feedback, and a listening ear!

Can I have more than one mentor or mentee?

Mentors and mentees will experience a mutually beneficial relationship, in which both parties will learn and grow from each other.
