Call for Volunteer Career AdvisorsFebruary 27 2012 at 1:16pm Madrid & Central Spain
Globiles is intended to make life easier for international professionals and one way we can do this is for more experienced members to share their advice and experience with members at the early stages of their careers.
I would like to kick this off by establishing a small group of volunteers who are prepared to spend some time with one or two less experienced members during 2012 to help with questions on their careers. These questions could range from moving companies sectors, locations, companies or simply doing better in their current employer, to starting their own business or raising finance for a new endeavour.
It may well be something you already do with others, either informally or formally. I personally get tremendous satisfaction from helping younger professionals grow in their career.
I don't want to be prescriptive about this and would welcome your suggestions including any limitations you would propose to your personal involvement. My idea is that prior to assigning any advisee, we would filter and match requests from members for such advice against the interests and offers of the potential Advisors. The commitment of the Advisor could be for an initial discussion (in person or skype) of maximum 30 minutes followed by other calls, emails or skypes as necessary during the year. The Advisor will be able to limit how much time he/she is spending at any time.
In exchange for this pioneering involvement, the Advisor would receive 500 points and Pioneer status (see Points and Privileges page) which entitles you to share in the profit pool of Globiles from 1/1/13.
I will be one of the Advisors and hope you will join me on this exciting initiative.
