At your service, IITians for IITians

At your service is a pool of talented IITians who have made a mark for themselves. The only catch, however, is that you would need to be an IIT student, alumni member or staffer, or simply a relative of somebody from the prestigious institution.

Want to hone your entrepreneurship skills? Or, maybe, get a few tips on becoming a musician?

At your service is a pool of talented IITians who have made a mark for themselves. The only catch, however, is that you would need to be an IIT student, alumni member or staffer, or simply a relative of somebody from the prestigious institution.

IITians helping IITians — this is the tagline of IITMentors, Delhi Chapter, which will be launched on August 1 by NIIT founder chairman and Delhi IIT alumnus Rajendra Singh Pawar. The first chapter of the initiative, mooted by PANIIT, was launched in Bangalore and Bay Area last year.

“This is the kind of a platform where an established IITian can be like a guide in your career. We will first take details of the mentees, their needs, and then start their offline match-making process with their respective mentors,” says Damnish, one of the launch coordinators in Delhi.

At least 30 mentors will be identified on the basis of their field of work, he said.

While the Bangalore Chapter had six tracks of mentoring, including entrepreneurship, corporate careers and academics, the Delhi Chapter will have one more sector – an offbeat one.
