JobsForHer Launches MentorForHer, A Mentorship Board for Women Restarters
Launched by Vaishali Kasture (Partner Deloitte Consulting) at the JobsForHer Ambassador Meetup, the Mentorship Board is an excellent networking opportunity for women restarters and individuals who wish to support them in their endeavor.
JobsForHer (JFH), a connecting portal that enables women on a professional break to restart their careers, launches its exclusive Mentorship Board – MentorForHer for women restarters. The online Mentorship Board includes some of the most prominent experts from multifarious industries across India.
The concept of mentorship has been highly regarded by people across the world since ancient times.
Today, mentorship can be witnessed in the corporate sphere as well, with men and women seeking out mentors to give them a sense of purpose, direction, and inspiration in their careers. It is a unique symbiosis of giving and receiving knowledge, and self-fulfillment for working people. It can get especially tough for women, who attempt to rejoin the workforce following a break in their careers.
To make the journey of women restarters less challenging, JFH’s MentorForHer initiative gives them the opportunity to pick seasoned expertise from an industry veteran on where to go next, and how to re-enter the workforce that they once had to leave behind. Launched by Vaishali Kasture (Partner Deloitte Consulting) at the JobsForHer Ambassador Meetup, the Mentorship Board is an excellent networking opportunity for women restarters and individuals who wish to support them in their endeavor.
Commenting on the launch, Vaishali Kasture, Partner, Deloitte Consulting said, “JobsForHer is an excellent platform for relaunching women’s careers. Usually, women lose confidence, connectivity, and their network when they take a career break. The JobsForHer Mentorship Board provides them with valuable credentials like an informal peer group, contacts, and access to the best corporates in India.”
Adding to this, Neha Bagaria, Founder & CEO, JobsForHer said, “The support and encouragement Mentorship offers is a huge confidence-builder for women restarting their careers. Women need that someone to guide them and give them a little push back up the ladder. The Mentorship Board provides multiple sources of expertise from mentors drawn from varied fields eager to point women in the right direction to meet the many challenges they face during their break. I believe quality mentoring greatly enhances chances for success.”
The Mentorship Board boasts of featured mentors from varying industry backgrounds, such as Banking and Financial Services, Consulting, HR,E-commerce, Real Estate, CSR, and IT across Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi/NCR, Hyderabad, Chennai and Pune.
Mentors can also showcase a Personal Branding page on the JobsForHer's Mentors section, which receives 1.5 Lakh visitors per month. Additionally, the ‘Follow Mentor’ feature on the Mentors profile page helps build a pipeline of followers who wish to seek their expertise, and would like to connect with them. Mentors can thus build their personal brand image and follower base.
JFH will also host online Webinars, where mentors can share their expertise on a subject with women on a monthly basis.
It is designed to address questions and provide essential pointers on trends in the current workforce. The mentors will identify proactive and reactive job search strategies by identifying and developing the candidate’s key competitive advantages.
What’s more, the MentorshipBoard’s ‘Mentor Chats’ feature will address any queries related to restarting a career for women on a monthly basis. They will also offer ’Guest Blogs’ to guide women in the workforce.
