Write in the first person, with "I"

Writing your description in the first person makes it more personal and creates already a connection with the mentee.

Pick the right picture

When mentees are looking for mentors, the picture is the first thing they will notice. They want to find someone trustful and nice.

Upload a high quality picture of yourself in the center of the frame, non-blurry.

Ideally, the picture will show yourself in the context of the topic you will be mentoring.

Present yourself

Introduce yourself and say who you are as a person.

Talk about your qualifications

Mentees are looking for people who have been in their shoes earlier or for a coach who can ask the right questions. Show that you are an expert in your area.

Present the session

Talk a bit about what the mentees should expect from the session and how you can help them.

The don'ts

A couple of items that will lead to the rejection of your profile until it is fixed are:

  • Don't write the names of your projects.
  • Don't add any links.
