Very good article Nov 20, 2012

Shows the mentor intends to help the trainee, would like to have her as mentor and agree with most of what she says. Good points raised and suggestions. The only difficulty I would find is "meeting the mentor" as I probably do not live in same country she does. Much better than a previous article I read about mentoring. He was more concerned with his own work, wonder why he offered in the first place, though one should not pester a mentor. There should be boundaries.

Mentor request Nov 22, 2012

May I ask for you to be my mentor please? I prefer to ask for someone who does not see me as a "burden" though I will respect your limits

Please check the ProZ.com mentoring program section and follow the steps Nov 22, 2012

Hello Josephine,

First of all, thanks for your feedback on my article!

Now, though I'd love to be your mentor, I am afraid I am not part of the ProZ.com mentoring program --at least not as a mentor-- but the manager of the program (I'm a ProZ.com staff member).

If you would like to meet a mentor and pair up, please follow the steps in http://www.proz.com/guidance-center/mentoring-program/become-an-apprentice

Also, perhaps you would like to watch this short promotional video that explains how the ProZ.com mentoring program works:

Hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Lucía
