Mentor Program

Mentor Program

Participate in the Midwest Chapter Mentorship Program!

The Midwest Chapter’s unique mentoring program allows mentees and mentors to build a relationship that benefits both parties. Many mentees have not yet started or decided on a definite career path, and meeting with a mentor puts mentees in a business environment where they can learn and apply their skills.

Program Details

• Foster relationships between seasoned CoreNet leaders and Young Leaders
• Foster personal, collaborative, professional discussions encompassing professional development, economic trends, client expectations,    industry expertise, market knowledge sharing, career management insight, managing personal brand, building a powerful network, successfully navigating change and challenging situations
• We request that participants commit to the program for one year or longer
• Participants have the option of corresponding via phone, email or in person, but we recommend meeting at least once every two months for the duration of the program.
• Mentor and mentee will be matched based on common motivations and career goals and schedule

Testimonials from past Mentorship Program participants

• “I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the CoreNet Mentoring Program. People truly enjoy learning from their peers. Regardless of where you are in your career you can gain critical insights and valuable life lessons without having to figure everything out on our own.”
– Frank Sherwood, Vice President, CBRE

• “The CoreNet Mentor Program is an avenue for me to help others early on in their careers focus on what is important for them to succeed. I feel it is a way I can help others eliminate time wasted worrying about what is not beneficial to grow. Corporate Real Estate has increasingly become more complex and if feels great to pass on my experience, especially when I gain new relationships with new ”up and comers” along the way!”
– Nancy Miller, Vice President, Integrated Program Manager, JLL

• “Having the opportunity to develop ideas and share experiences with an individual with relevant insight, allows for the expansion of creative and motivating thought while navigating career and workplace challenges. My CoreNet mentorship relationship has brought me this opportunity, and it has allowed me to accelerate the development of not only my career, by myself as an individual.”
– Tim Venne, Associate Director, Cushman & Wakefield – NorthMarq
