Staff Encouraged to Apply for Career Advancement Mentorship Program

May 11, 2016

Staff members seeking career mentorship, upward mobility or opportunities to excel in their chosen fields are encouraged to apply for UC Merced’s 2016-17 Career Advancement Mentorship Program (CAMP).

CAMP is a volunteer effort that matches experienced UC Merced mentors with staff members who seek guidance and professional development. The program is sponsored by UC Merced Staff Assembly and Human Resources’ professional development unit.

The program, which starts its third year July 1, matches mentors and mentees based on their interests and experiences and provides assistance with goal setting, job satisfaction, job enhancement and lateral or upward mobility.

CAMP offers bimonthly workshops and group and individual mentorship opportunities to further advance the professional development goals of UC Merced staff members. The deadline to apply to be a CAMP mentee or mentor is noon, May 31.

Additional information about the program is available online. Forms to apply as mentees or mentors are online, too.

Staff members can access the University of California’s professional development policy here.
