Mentor Match FAQs

Mentor Match FAQs
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! Enroll today.

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! Mentors should be committed to strict confidentiality on information shared by their mentee.

Can I have more than one mentor or mentee?

A mentor can accept as many mentees as they wish and have time to work with. Mentees can also connect with more than one mentor if they wish to. We recommend accepting no more than 2-3 mentees in order to devote the appropriate amount of time to mentorship.

I no longer wish to be listed as a mentor or mentee, can I be removed?

Yes, on your mentor or mentee profile, you can click on Edit Mentor or Mentee status.  If "No" is showing, you ARE currently participating in the WTS Mentor Program. Press the "No" switch to reveal "Yes" to reflect that you are temporarily NOT participating in the program. We recommend communicating that your status will be changing to any current mentors or mentees you are connected with.
