While explaining the mentoring process to an individual dong research on implementing a mentoring program at their facility, I was asked "Why are profile forms an essential part of a mentoring program?" I explained that it is important to have profile forms because the form serves as an important matching criterion for mentors and mentorees. The profile form allows each participant to express their personal views, beliefs and expectations prior to starting a mentoring program. Once the form is completed, it will help facilitate the matching process for the program manager, or the software, if one is being utilized. In any type of mentoring program, the goal is to have two individuals with similar viewpoints matched together so that the relationship has a rewarding experience and a positive outcome at the end of the mentoring relationship.
