ATA Mentoring—It’s Not Just for Newcomers

Mentoring is more than just for newcomers, especially when it comes to the ATA Mentoring Program!

Why would a translator or interpreter who’s been in the business for a while want to work with a mentor?
• To transition from a full-time employee to an independent contractor
• To look for ways to get a foot in the door with direct clients
• To consider a new specialization or expanding services
• To learn how to make better use of a CAT tool in their workflow
• To plan a career move from consecutive to simultaneous interpreting
• To find advice on marketing techniques and social media
• To troubleshoot relationships with project managers and agencies

Advice, encouragement, lessons learned, career guidance—the benefits of being a mentee can be crucial to a career or business.

Applications from interested mentees will be accepted through March 31, 2022.
