Review of Mentorink
In general, it was easy to use and our program was mostly based on it.
It helped me and mentor follow the weekly schedule and meeting times.
I was both mentor and mentee, but in one account I could not apply for both of them. Thus, I opened a second one and applied for the other position. This feature should be improved.
Manage coaching and mentoring process easily
They were very open to our request but instead of doing all of our request, they have always got ideas what is the correct way.
Also I can say that software is very user friendly.
Sometimes in terms of customization you might have some limitations. But the team can find a solution for the problem.
The Amazing Experience of Mentoring
During more than 2 years of experience, Mentorink has facilitated all steps of our mentoring program from beginning to end. For example, Mentorink has offered us to match mentors and mentees by analyzing their personal and professional features. Thanks to Mentorink, we have a chance to create organizational memory related to mentoring experiences. Now, we can easily monitor and report participants' mentoring experiences which in turn contributes to the improvement in employee engagement. Thus far, I writed as my administrator role in our mentoring program. I also participated our program as a mentee and had chance to observe that Mentorink prevent participants from dropping out the program by sending reminders and providing interesting content.
Because we are working for Defence Industry, we have lots of information security softwares and confidential projects. That's why we didn't even consider whether we could integrate Mentoring in our Intranet systems.
FID/FMV Işık Un. Mentorink experience
There were more than 200 matchings during 1.5 years. We could't manage that amount of service without Mentorink especially since we were an NGO, and volunteer workers.
Mentorink team were very helpful.
Follow up part.
Most mentorship relations fade away gradually in hectic lives of professionals.
Mentorink sends you nice messages with motivating words. Keeps you in track.
For ideal matching your pool has to be wide. Otherwise Manuel matching may work better.
The last matchings (better saying is rest matchings) are not good enough.
System always has to be fed with new comers.
We use Mentorink to facilitate remote Alumni-Student mentoring programme
-user data collection
-matching users (mentor-mentee pairing) based on determined criteria
-facilitating and following communication between mentor-mentee pairs
-creating user certificates upon completion
In general we are satisfied. Especially because the co-owners are always available to help our users with any problems within less than 24 hours. Thank you Mentorink.
Friendly and solution-oriented Customer Service available close to 7/24
High benefit-cost ratio
Having to download the user data as an MSExcel sheet and then analyze it! It will be an excellent software once the currently "in progress" functions -and mobile app- become available.

Cooperation and Collaboration
I loved sharing my experiences, career decisions and their outcomes; as well as observing that young people have this appetite to learn, listen and be guided. With the help of this system new generation have the opportunity to take more solid and determined steps in their career and life.
I loved the fact that this platform encourages experienced people to cooperate and collaborate with young and clever minds. With the help of experienced people, the young generation is aided and leaded towards a better future with better career decisions. It is a great opportunity for creating values and cultivating minds through a multilateral system.
I wish I would have received a better customer service, as my submitted question with regards to the system still remains unanswered.
Mentor for better
I have used the Mentorink platform over the past years in its early days. I had matched with two mentees in different academic years both of whom have made their dream come true. I wish anyone with expertise in any area must use this platform for sharing their experiences and mentoring those with lesser experience.
The good thing about the platform is that it finds the best matches as in mentor and mentee as both users provide sufficient background.
The third-party video conference platform had been stuck from time to time. As the mentee and mentor, we had to use our own personal video conference accounts.
Why should you sign up for Mentorink?
With these program , I had a chance to meet very valuable people who are graduated from our university and by this way I learned lots of career related informations and experiences from different backgrounds.
Also, even though it wasn't my intention for this software , I improved my communication skills more as well.
It is easy to use and it provides a certificate that you can easily link up Linkedn account online.
It looks like it corresponds all needs but maybe physical apperance of software can be improved more.
A very innovative and user friendly solution to manage our mentoring program online.
My ideas and future plan changed
As an educational institution, our top priority is to establish a reliable channel between our alumni and students to enable them to share experiences and grow together. We had organised mentoring programmes historically but it was always very hard for us to manage. We very much struggled to handle large groups of people with offline tools. Mentorink has made the process extremely easy for us. We can now onboard thousands of people instantly, find the best matches instantly and the system provides all of the guidance automatically. Plus, we can get full visibility over the analytics and ensure that our programme is really contributing to the success of our participants. Mentorink has transformed the whole process from being very effort-intensive into a very easy one.
The programme works very well for us at the moment and we look forward to receiving new features. It is really helpful to meet other people in this program and to take advantage of their suggestions and experiences and to direct them to the future.
Using Mentorink for University Students
Better follow up for our mentoring program for university students
Follow up is easy with this system instead of calling many mentors or mentee. We can see how often they talk and what is their last date of communication. To have all information about participants in one place is an advantage.
Information about past activities are not properly organized. There is no app yet.
Very easy to use, structured and result-oriented mentoring programme
Mentorink removes the time and location barrier among our employees across 8 countries and enables us to learn from the experiences of each other through a low-cost solution. The smart mentoring activities help us unleash our own potential and accelerate the individual and professional development within our company.
Mentorink is a great platform to gain experience in that area.
I found a chance to improve my mentoring and coaching skills in a productive way.
Mentorink is so easy to use. It's a big opportunity for people who want to improve their mentoring skills.
Mentorink offers diffent ways of communication between Mentor and mentee. This is the best ability of website.
Mentorink is a high quality program that serves our corporate exchange and connects us efficiently.
We got rid of the time and place limitations to connect with each other. As our company is located in 8 different countries, the space and physical touch might get hard; but with this software we got rid of these problems which can create a big burden in todays fast moving world.
It helped us a lot.
The software is very user friendly, the team is open to customization, and their help desk is available whenever there is a need.
my mentorink experience
When I started to using Mentorink, I realized that I can touch somebody's life with my experiences
and I can be guide for her/him. It's a lot valuable I think.
This software is linking the people for their experience. I like mostly this.
When both side were online, you can use instant messaging by this software however messages haven't been received simultaneously. It would be better if this problem could be solved.
Great way to improve your career
I had a mentee for 15 sessions and it was a great learning and development for both of us.
User friendly and very simple to use. It has video conference features which makes it a complete platform for you to communicate to your mentee/mentor.
The messages in my inbox did not turn to as read even though I read them. This is something should be improved.
Overall complete system for mentoring
I have been a volunteer mentor at Mentorink since 2 years. I believe Mentörink benefits both sides.
I wish Mentorink to reach and touch more people.
Mentörink makes the mentor-mentee pairings very accurate according to the mentee's expectations and the mentor's experience. System guides them about the content before each interview and video calls can be made easily via their own platform.
Interview tracking system and video call quality could be improved.
I had a wonderful experience with my mentees during the program and also learned a lot!
To able to share my own experience with my mentees and to make a difference in their life's made me very happy. I have also learned lots of new things from them. This type of communication can really make a difference. One of the most impottant thing is a correct match of mentees and mentors regarding their expectation and experiences in their lives. In this concept I felt grateful regarding the matches with my mentees.
Great platform to get advice from professionals
Guild of the modern world
I learned a lot from meetings. A few of them are team work and timing
I think this software is a guild that carries the master apprentice relationship of the past to the modern world.
There is no important tool for face-to-face meetings. Therefore, google maps should be added and keep the meeting address registered.
