Whether your goal is to build your professional network, develop core recruiting capabilities, or develop critical skills to enhance your career, the STAR Chicago Mentor Program is for you!

Our graduates are early to experienced professionals, who are passionate learners with a desire to grow their careers, learn new skills, and or gain knowledge that allows them to navigate the challenging world of talent acquisition. This 9 month program will start October, 2020 and will run through May 2021.

Regardless of your level and years of experience, our Mentee Program provides Mentors who are experienced in the talent acquisition industry, have worked with both positive and difficult hiring managers, addressed critical staffing needs, and navigated through complex corporate environments.

A Mentor is someone who has a genuine desire to give back to others within the talent acquisition industry, appreciating similar opportunities they may have ad at earlier points in their own careers. There is no greater feeling of satisfaction than being able to help others to professionally grow and develop.
