We have a ton of awesome mentors in the group that are willing to help others. Thought it would be super cool if we could organize 1-1’s for a set period of time to select junior devs in the community.
Kind of related to Gauging Interest: Onboarding Bootcamp Grads?
Helping juniors develop the skill of interacting with mentors would be a huge win.
Maybe we can set a few requirements so mentors don’t get swamped, ie:
- mentor can only take on X number of 1-1’s
- the official program is NOT indefinite, so fixed number of 1-1’s (though people can be encouraged to continue once the program ends)
- juniors must submit an application that goes through a selection process
- juniors must purchase coffee/breakfast/lunch in respect for the mentor’s time
Any mentors in the house interested in this? Juniors? What do you think?
