02-09-2006, 07:08 PM
I just signed up for the TPS mentoring session. I'm really excited about it, but not too excited about looking for a parking spot that night. (it's at 7pm)
Anybody know where you can park for that or is it first come first serve anywhere?

Also, is there a certain dress code for these sessions?
Wear a Suit - Remember whenever you go their - you want to make a good impression. If you are dropping off an updated resume or signing your contract - WEAR A SUIT.
Someone is always watching................

Suit it is then.
Do all applicants go to these sessions, or does it just look good for the ones that do end up going?
I guess it shows them you are very interested and serious about TPS.
Not everyone goes to these sessions. But if you are asked to sign up or told that mentoring is available by a recruiter - SIGN UP!. You are basically told it is voluntary - but I have learned most of the time it is voluntold!.
Another Note - I was told that if you go into an ECI with no prior knowledge your pass percentage is 10%. If you take the Mentoring Session you are a 50%. If it is your 2nd attempt then you are 70-80%.

Thats some good stats.
Too bad they didnt have a 'free' parking lot. :)
I am also going to the mentor class. I've heard nothing but good things about it
Hello guys guys guys
NO SUIT for mentoring man.
I have done two mentoring sessions with TPS in oast 4 months, out of 30 people two wore suits man. and they looked like geeks.
even the recruiter told them you dont have to wear suits eer except LFI ad ECI.
wear nice jeans or pants, sweater or shirt with jacket, normal shoues.
all that happens is they talk about the TPS for one hour and you go home.
Absolutely do not wear a suit at all.
Don't listen to \"Guest\". Remember everytime you walk into that building you are being judged. Make the best impression possible always. Is it necessary to wear a suit - NO! But the people that do the mentoring session could be the ones during your Interviews.
Trust me on this one...............

What's the big deal about wearing a suit? I think it is totally necessary. Just like bdv says, they are watching you.
And I'm 32, I can handle some young bucks calling me a geek.
Mostly when I get hired instead of them.................. HAHAHA, jokin

Good attitude Fjacky ... bvd is absolutely correct ... and seeing as he has been hired - his opinion and views should be given a lot of weight.
... and what is wrong with suits....
BDV is absolutely correct!
You want to dress to impress because they are watching! :twisted:
