Hello

Thanks Delphine,

Nice to meet you, too. I'm still getting my head around World Pulse, and the way it works. I've been networking bit-by-bit. I will be sharing some of my personal experiences very soon. How do I get assigned a mentor / editor or is this something that comes after? Thank you. Lortoria.

Hi Lotoria,

I am glad you are here and starting networking.
Here is a link to our getting started guide: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide It might be helpful to understand better how World Pulse works.
As for mentors, are you applying to our Voices of Our Future training program? If you get selected to the program, you will be partnered with a mentor.
I hope this answers your questions.
Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions or concerns.
Cheers,
Delphine

Hi Delphine,

Yes, I'm applying to VOF 2013. I'm slowly starting to get the hang of it, and I will read through the guide to get me up to speed.
Thank you--if anything else come to mind, I will.
