Sigma has the resources and knowledge to help expand your career through online and in-person career advising, mentoring, and coaching.
Are you planning on attending a Sigma event this year? Would you like to ask specific question(s) related to your career in a face to face meeting with an expert?
Do you have a specific career-related question that requires a time sensitive answer and you are not attenting a Sigma event in the time frame you require?
Are you looking for a new career position? Are you interested in exploring career opportunities that might be available and of interest to you?
Do you have a specific career/work/school project/task/goal that you require assistance with from an expert in that area?
Do you want to make a broad modification/change your career, i.e. advance/change position, change career trajectories that require more in-depth direction, advice, and/or guidance?
Career advisors are available to help with one-time questions and requests.
Join the Career Advice Forum on The Circle to ask questions and get responses from nurses from around the world! In addition, as a career advisor, you can earn volunteer points and give back to your community one question at a time.
Several Sigma events offer a Career Center to provide an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a career advisor:

Career mentoring develops you not only in your current position but also for the future. Mentoring relationship requires a focus area for the relationship, to guide the relationship and mentoring process. Career mentoring relationships are longer-term relationships, typically six months with the option to continually renew.
Career coaching focuses on a specific project or concrete issue, such as enhancing a skill or acquiring new skills. Coaching relationships are shorter-term relationships, typically three months or less.
