OCR congratulates the 45 USIA partners and managers who participated in our February 3rd kickoff of the 1998 Mentoring program. These new mentoring partnerships encourage employees to make roadmaps for their career objectives. Therefore, during the 1998 eight-month program, there will be a variety of workshops focusing on formulating Individual Development Plans (IDP), positive image-building, public speaking, resume preparation, avoiding the crossfire of office politics. Mentorees will meet at least four times a month with their respective Mentors.

In September, a graduation ceremony will take place and OCR will begin working on the 1999 mentoring partnerships.

OCR is extremely proud of this program and sincerely appreciates the willingness of managers and supervisors to take time out of their hectic schedules to volunteer to "coach" employees who are earnestly seeking to improve their promotion and career advancement prospects. A Big Thank You to each and every one of you!
