Mentorship Event Tips and Tricks:
1. Take advantage of optimized tags
Glimpse offers matching by tags in order to optimize the matching process. As the host of a Glimpse event, you will have the option of enabling tags for each user and change the settings for how users are matched by tags.
For a mentorship event, you can enable tags to allow mentees to only match with mentors and vice versa. Additionally, if you are a student organization at a university, you could customize tags for class years, majors, and more for optimized matching! By taking advantage of optimized tags, you can easily ensure that at your mentorship event, mentees and mentors are matched only with relevant people.
2. Enable icebreakers
With Glimpse, you can say goodbye to awkward Zoom calls and that dreaded prolonged silence we’re all too familiar with! Glimpse offers built-in icebreakers that will help your attendees get the conversation going.
Don’t like the built-in icebreakers? Don’t worry, as the host of a Glimpse event, you can customize the list of icebreakers and type in your own conversation starters!
3. Customize the experience
Beyond being able to create your perfect icebreaker questions to get the conversation started, Glimpse is highly customizable to best suit your mentorship event. Once you create an event, you will be able to add your own photo booth frames, enable document sharing, allow members to connect after the event, enable minigames, and more. Additionally, as the host, you can adjust the amount of time your attendees stay in each match, make announcements, and open up the lobby for everyone.
