What does it mean to be a MENTOR at Hackbright Academy?
Hackbright students are looking forward to becoming professional software developers and your insight will be invaluable along the way. Be a sounding board for your mentee. They will be encouraged to ask you questions, both technical and about the industry. The best Mentors are the ones who advise based on experience, and are supportive of the student on her path of technical discovery!
The commitment: at least 1 hour a week with your Mentee through December 2013.
Hackbright students will be learning a ton and working a lot over the next few months, and having a source of encouragement and insight outside of the classroom will be invaluable to them. The students will also be practicing for technical interviews in the last few weeks of the program, and your participation will be valuable then and moving forward as the student begins her new career as a software engineer.
It's because of mentorship relationships like this that our industry thrives. Giving back and mentoring is the foundation our community is built on.
Thank you so much for your support!
