The SEAONC SE3 Committee is launching a Long-Term Mentorship Program!
The goal of the program is to create mentee-mentor pairs or groups across age, experience, and firms to encourage less experienced engineers to gain strategic guidance and career advice.
In our 2016 survey, we found that respondents with identified mentors reported being more satisfied with career trajectory and career choice. SEAONC has long fostered a strong community among structural engineers in the Bay Area, and the SE3 mentorship program seeks to strengthen that legacy.
“Having a mentor motivated me to focus on my career goals rather than just my daily tasks and assignments. I hadn’t thought about that until I had a mentor who asked me those questions and showed interest in my development.” - Tim Hart, SEAONC President
“Mentorship orients us to the greater world of our profession, and helps us become the best version of ourselves.” - Taryn Williams, SEAONC Past President
