Solicitation: SES candidate development program needs mentors

By MyCG Staff


Mentors are needed for the DHS Senior Executive Service (SES) Candidate Development Program (CDP), which just launched its ninth cohort of 45 high-potential candidates from across the Department. 

As part of the rigorous and intensive development experience, all candidates are paired with a mentor to help guide them as they navigate program requirements and increase their executive potential. 

Mentoring can be rewarding for both the mentee and the mentor. A mentor shares their knowledge and experience with someone who strives to follow their path in one way or another. 

If selected, you’ll help DHS’s SES candidates maximize their potential by offering career advice, helping candidates work through challenges, sharing insights into the work environment of a DHS executive, offering candid feedback, and introducing candidates to executive networking opportunities. 

The Coast Guard has two candidates participating in the SES CDP, Mitchell Schoenberg (CG-85) and Benjamin Currier (CG-0949). 

Applications are due by Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2020 to
