Happy Women’s History Month! We appreciate all of the amazing women innovating the STEMM field every day and the highly talented women that assist in making NRMN a valuable resource for STEMM field professionals. Now that your spring break is over, we know you have the end in sight. So, let’s finish this semester with a bang! For March Enhancements & Highlights, we want to highlight our personalized customizations within MyMentor, the tool our mentees can utilize to ask mentors for advice or specific questions, and a feature we built for STEMM professionals to find more career opportunities.

MyMentor is our guided virtual mentoring program. We have created and structured this program to tailor different career paths within the platform. MyMentor is designed to be a four-month mentoring relationship with goals and tasks to accomplish along the way. As we have built this platform from the ground up, we can offer your institution a customized MyMentor program specifically for your students or cohort. If you would like to learn more about our MyMentor customizations features, reach out to the NRMN team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ask a mentor
The Ask a Mentor tool starts the dialogue between mentees and mentors. This feature was added to MyNRMN because our team noticed that some mentees were hesitant to connect with mentors they did not already know. We wanted to help mentees create that relationship with a mentor on the platform without having to establish a connection first. In addition, this tool can be used to ask a question to the entirety of the platform, to receive more diverse answers than from asking only one mentor. You can utilize this tool from the home page menu in the top left-hand corner.
Jobs and Internships
The Jobs and Internships board is a beneficial tool for STEMM professionals to access many different career opportunities. For example, you can utilize this feature if you need help promoting a job or internship opening. Or, if you are looking for something for yourself, the opportunities posted in the Jobs & Internships Board range from job postings to funding opportunities to summer research and many more career opportunities. To access the new Jobs & Internships Board, log into your MyNRMN account and select “Jobs & Internships” from the menu bar at the top of the dashboard. It’s easy to post a job and leave comments on posts to provide your recommendations.
