Application is Open for Mentees​

Application Details

We’re looking for eager mentees to join the ProductBC Autumn 2020 mentorship program.

The program aims to match you with your ideal mentor based on these areas of professional interest:

  • Career and Role Development: advice on finding and achieving your next role, starting out at a new company, understanding the product management role, advice on processes, practices, tools, methodologies, and skills development.
  • Product Advisor: support in finding alternatives / solutions to the specific challenges of the products you manage.
  • Leadership Development: developing thought leadership, general management and cross-functional management skills.

Why is there a $25 fee?

Over the past seven sessions, we’ve found that members get a ton of value from the mentorship program, and it gets better every time. The low fee helps us to cover any administrative expenses, and build up a small pool of funds for future in-person mentorship events when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

If you do not get matched with a mentor (given that you have attended the online matching event), you will receive a full refund on your $25 fee.

If you need assistance with the fee, email mentorship@productbc.ca and we will figure out options for you.
