As a rule, I don't blog about for-profit products or services, but the exception is when it's something, well, exceptional. In other words, something unique that I haven't seen out there before.
Advance Mentoring fits that description. It's an online service that both helps individuals find mentors and also enables companies to set up customized Web-based mentoring programs.
The site reads, "The sophisticated Bloodhound Matching Algorithm™ matches prospective Mentors and Mentees based upon such factors as skills, personality, personal information, career background, and industry of focus.
The Advance Mentoring Organization Client also provides training and resources for both Mentors and Mentees."
Web components include:
* Personal Home Page Features
* Advance Mentoring Email
* Reminders and Calendar
* Instant Messaging
* Advance Mentoring Personality Test
Intriguing. If anyone tries it, leave a comment and tell us how it is.
