Virtual mentoring Virtual mentoring is when a designated mentor and his mentee communicate from a distance via the means of technological communication. Resources like email, electronic conferencing, and specialized software are used to connect both parties in virtual meetings where activities like networking, goal-setting, career planning, general discussion, and the development of leadership qualities and professional experience take place. Virtual mentoring is beneficial for companies who outsource their work, employ expatriates, or provide employees with work-from-home options. Small businesses, who may be unable to afford or arrange mentor travel, can also benefit from the use of this option. With the use of reliable technology, mentors and mentees are still able connect regardless of the geographical distance between them.
