About the program & why you should become a Mentor

What is the Rudderly Mentorship Program?


Rudderly Mentorship program aims to answer the basic question that hundreds of people face everyday- “How to realise my potential professionally". We do this by helping members identify areas of potential interest, then connect them with successful professionals from the field, who guides them through a structured mentorship program.




What is the curriculum or structure of the program?


There isn't a set curriculum, since each mentee may have a different challenge that they need help with, one may be starting off their career, while others may be pivotting their career after a decade of working. That said, we try to work with both the mentee & mentors to bring productive, outcome driven conversation. Also, upto getting relavant permissions the mentees assessment reports could be shared with the Mentors to assist the conversation. Rough structure to a mentorship session- - Build a non-judgmental rapport with the Mentee
- Understand what motivates them & what they want from their careers - Share your journey highlights & struggles
- Give them an overview of the career
- Solving a real-world assignment - Open doors to opportunities - Resume & Interview prep




What is the duration of the mentorship program?


Each mentorship is conducted over 2 sessions of 1.5 hour each. All mentorship sessions will be conducted on Zoom video conferencing. After 2 sessions, your mentor obligation with Rudderly (for that spcific mentee) is over. It is up to the mentor’s discretion if they want to provide the mentee with their contact details. Rudderly does not accept any liability for the interaction after the two sessions of mentorship.




How much of time must I commit?


Each mentorship session is for a minimum of an hour but typically stretches to 1.5 hours. Normally a successful mentorship would last for a min. of 4-6 sessions, with a gap of 10days between sessions. We understand that our mentors will be very busy and typically we help coordinate on revised timing to make it work with our mentor's busy schedules.




What is the minimum qualification to become a mentor?


While selecting mentors, we look at the professional experiences, challenges overcome and success acheieved as a baseline to accept Mentors. Typically, mentors have a min. of 5 years of experience. We also like to ensure all our mentors are motivated by giving back and helping out the next generation within their given professions.




Does a mentor get paid ?


Yes, mentors can choose to an honorarium for their time. A mentee is charged dynamically from Rs. 1500 upto Rs. 8,000 per hour. Rudderly retains 30% as their commission. That said, many of our mentor are not doing this for the money and can choose to have the remianing 70% transferred to a bank account of their choosing or donate their proceeds to one of Rudderly's NGO partners




I’d love to join. Now what?


We are delighted to have you on board! The first step would be to fill up the form linked above and someone from our team will get in touch with you shortly.




What if I want to mentor pro-bono?


One of the reasons we charge the members for mentorship is so that they take the sessions seriously and come prepared. If you would like to not receive payment, we have tied up with three NGOs - Urja Trust (Rehabilitating Homeless women), The Last Wilderness (Environment), The Welfare of Stray Dogs (Animal care) - from which you can choose one to donate your payment to. We will send you a donation certificate as proof of contribution.

The platform is such a wonderful initiative to ignite curious minds. I wish there was something like this when I was stuck between crossroads on where to go with my career.

Nothing in my life prepared me for my first mentorship session at Rudderly. As  a Business Developer, I have spoken at large public conferences on many occasions.  However, a personal, in depth insight was another ball game altogether and one that I wish had been there when I trying to figure my career.

I've enjoyed myself hugely being a Rudderly mentor. It was  an eye opener to engage  with next gen X to hear how they think and what their ambitions are. I enjoyed sharing my experiences as a journalist with my mentee and hope to do so again .
