CFA Society South Florida's mentor program is an all-volunteer program that pairs up newer stage career professionals with more seasoned individuals to help facilitate a better career experience for both the mentee and mentor. You do not have to be a seasoned veteran to be a mentor and you do not have to be a recent graduate to be a mentee. This program offers great potential to make a very significant positive impact on others in our profession.
This program affords CFA candidates and recent charterholders the opportunity to be paired with more senior members of the local investment community. The program is designed to help members network and exchange ideas between more seasoned members and the next generation of financial professionals. We have secured a number of new mentors in both Palm Beach and Broward Counties who are available to spend time both face to face and via telephone with mentees.
This program is not meant to be an interview platform, but instead an opportunity for mentors to impart wisdom on mentees who are curious about different aspects of the investment business or are looking to transition from one area to another. Mentors will also facilitate introductions to other members for mentees, help with career decisions and provide general insight into the industry.
Mentees are expected to be proactive participants in meetings realizing that having a mentor is a privilege and their time should be respected. Exact meeting locations and schedules will be determined by the parties, but we would suggest lunch or coffee and if practical, mentors can invite mentees to company events or industry gatherings (CFA-sponsored or otherwise).
This program is offered free of cost to CFA Society South Florida members in good standing. Should you be interested in learning more please email
