 CFA/DFW Mentor Program

Thank you for your interest in the CFA/DFW Mentor Program.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2014-15 Program Year.
More information will follow once the new Mentor Year approaches.

Mentor News: The CFA Society of DFW Mentoring Program officially "launched" in January 2009.  While we had more applicants ask for a Mentor than to be a mentor, we were able to match almost all applicants with a partner.  
Paul Olschwanger, the Career Development and Job Placement Chair for the CFA Society of DFW Board, spoke briefly about the benefits of mentoring and how to maximize the impact of mentoring relationships.
Throughout 2013, mentors and their partners will meet periodically on their own schedules.  The Society also anticipates hosting two or three events for the mentoring teams. 

Then, at the end of the year, feedback from all participants will help us determine if the program should continue in the future.  

Key points about the program, as you consider whether or not to participate: 

  • The Society has a suggested set of meeting topics, which also are posted on our Society web-site, together with program applications.
  • Participants will commit to participating in the program for one year, with a goal of at least 6 mentoring meetings.  (Mentors and those being mentored will be responsible for setting up their own meetings.
  • At the end of the year, we will survey all participants, using their feedback and suggestions to improve or discontinue the program going forward.
  • This is not a "job search” program; instead it is designed to help our members grow and connect, thereby encouraging their personal and professional growth.
