We hope this email finds you well.
On behalf of the AOM Careers Division, we would like to inform you about our exciting Mentoring Program aimed at developing the academic careers of junior scholars (defined as pre-tenure, no more than 8 years post PhD).
The purpose of the mentoring program is to connect senior scholars with junior faculty. Two mentors will be matched with four junior faculty and meet 4 times during the year (between January and December 2021), with specific objectives for each meeting. The program is highly structured and has a defined commitment, clear expectations, and a planned end date.
The mentoring program seeks to facilitate relational mentoring and career conversations between junior and senior scholars, with a shared interest in careers research. This program aims to provide early career members an opportunity to get to know and be mentored by established scholars. Our aspiration is to build and continue this tradition of mentoring and dialogue on careers (both research and managing your own career).
Please let us know if you are a junior scholar that would like to participate in the Mentoring Program. If you would like to join this initiative of the AOM Careers Division, please complete this application (you can also copy and paste https://forms.gle/oouhMagQiqPvJsix7 into your web browser to complete the application). We look forward to starting this opportunity to connect throughout the year!
