We asked our Tribe about Mentoring
"Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to have mentors that have aided my skills and career development. Knowing that you have a mentors support and guidance has allowed me to have confidence in my own abilities and has been instrumental in my career success. Making this available to everyone is a great idea and will significantly benefit those who are prepared to invest in themselves.'"
Angel Rodriguez - CEO - Unicaja
"I've read everything there is to read but after 10y in macro my career accelerated exponentially in 18 months working under a Portfolio Manager that cared about my progression and offered constructive criticism. That was a lucky break on my part, but you come to realise that feedback is invaluable and I wish I sought guidance much earlier"
Michael - Portfolio Manager - Graham Capital
How does this work?
As a mentee, you apply to a specific area of interest and our team matches you with a potential mentor that can best help you reach your goals. The mentors have the chance to accept or reject it which is why a good application is paramount.
On acceptance, you will be asked (if your mentor charges a fee) to authorize payment. Don’t worry - you can just cancel if you don’t like it!
You’ll then be able to get in touch with your mentor through a chat. From there, your mentor is going to help you with the next steps. The MacroMentors Team will support you at each step of this.
Who are the mentors?
Mentors come from various backgrounds in Finance. We have a application and vetting process set up in order to only accept and show you the best mentors in their category. Mentors are also evaluated throughout their service. Let us know how your experience is!
What can I expect from my mentor?
This is a question we get quite a lot. And the possibly unsatisfying answer: It depends on your mentor.
What you can expect from all of our mentors
Availability as needed for questions, advice and guidance.
Guidance on working towards your personal goal.
Flexibility when it comes to goal changes, help requests and organization.
Actionable coaching, such as help for job interviews, CV checks, career guidance.
A stable point of contact. Whatever might happen in your career - your mentor is there for you.
What many mentors also offer (depending on their description):
1-on-1 video call sessions
Review of your work and actionable advice based on it
Specific finance challenges & to-dos
What you can’t expect from a mentor:
A pre-structured curriculum. Mentors will help you personally, not give you lectures that you could also find online. They are happy to point you towards the right resources though.
Around the clock support. Mentors are there for you in their down- and free time. They might have busy schedules sometimes too and might now always be able to respond in the span of a few minutes.
Instant replies. Our mentorships are designed to be long-term (most mentorship are longer than one month). Don’t panic if your mentor doesn’t reply for a few hours, they mostly have full-time jobs and might be busy - just be sure that you are still a priority (and get in touch if you feel neglected).
What do mentor services mean?
Mentors and students can currently choose between the following services:
Chat: The ability for students to chat with their mentor. Every mentor has to provide this service.
Weekly Goals & Activities: The mentor sets weekly goals and activities for the student. These can consist of small challenges and project or reading material. They are supposed to help towards reaching a bigger end goal.
1-on-1 Talks: The mentor is available for 1-on-1 phone calls. How often these occur is meant to be agreed on between the student and the mentor. They can be irregular and spontaneous or scheduled weekly/biweekly/monthly.
Hands-on Support: The mentor is willing to help the student with a particular challenge, by giving him hints or even pointing to a possible solution. Important: Mentors are not freelancers!

How Does It Work
CREATE A PROFILE
As a mentor on MacroMentors, you will create a profile designating your price range, what you are ready to do, what your experience is, together with some additional information.
In practice, how you mentor others is up to you – what's more important to us is that you can designate how much time and effort you want to invest. We know that you are busy and built MacroMentors with that in mind.
Select Your Mentees
It is absolutely in your control, who you are deciding to mentor and who you'd rather not work with at the time.
Mentees will fill out an application when reaching out for mentorship, stating their goal, expectation, background and more. Based on that information, you can decide whether to take them on as a mentee.
Apart from a few best practices, we do not have a framework for effective mentorship. The best part about MacroMentors is that each mentor solves problems differently, that makes this platform so great!
A mentorship always starts with a set goal. Your job is to help a mentee reach that goal. We will provide a small management dashboard, including a chat window and task manager, to communicate with your mentee, but any method or medium that works for you, works for us too.
Your Way to Becoming a Mentor
When you apply to be a mentor you will go through the following steps
Application & Vetting
You fill out the application form, we will thoroughly review it and see if you'd fit our wide-ranging mentorship team.
Onboarding & Start
We will get you up and running. You'll meet all mentors in the community and get access to best practises we've learned over time.
Mentoring & Evaluation
You'll create your profile and we will start matching you with mentees!
How much time does this require?
We generally ask for at least one session (30-minutes) per week. If life gets busy and you need to freeze your calendar for a bit, no big deal.
How much do mentors get paid?
The standard rate is $100USD/hour, but the range goes from pro-bono to $500USD/hour.
Do I have to accept every session?
No, your options for every session request are to accept, reschedule, or decline.
How long is a session?
A standard session is 30-minutes and an extended session is 60-minutes. There is no preparation required before sessions. If you come to an agreement with a mentee to review their work or do something in advance (or after the session) that is completely up to the two partied involved.
Where do the sessions occur?
Each mentor-mentee relationship is organised in a chat. Zoom links for calls are provided and when a call has been accepted that link is sent via a calendar invite.
What stage are most mentees at?
Most mentees are early and mid-level in their career. Some may just about to enter the industry, others are already in for a few years, and some mid-level professionals may need guidance on how to make their next move.
