Greetings, Mentorship Graduates!
As a recent graduate of the LFX Mentorship program, you may be asking yourself now what? You are just starting your open source journey, and staying active in the community goes a long way in building your professional network and future hiring opportunities.
We encourage you to stay connected and build on your open source involvement in four ways:
The LFX Community is THE place to connect with the open source community, build relationships and share your story as an LF mentee. Join the LFX community and let your fellow mentees know what you learned, give a shout out to your mentor, or share your experience.
To become a member simply sign up here:
Organizations are eager to find and recruit new talent. Continue your open source career and gain marketable open source skills. The Linux Foundation offers many free training courses, in addition to respected certifications.
Check back in for an upcoming announcement from the training team you won’t want to miss!

The Individual Dashboard is your digital open source resume. Connect your GitHub and LinkedIn accounts and highlight your open source contributions.
The benefit of Individual Dashboard is that as you get more involved in open source, not only are your contributions highlighted, but your open source training and certifications, events, and community roles are highlighted as well. Show future hiring managers the full scope of your involvement with industry-leading open source communities.
to configure your Individual Dashboard here: Individual Dashboard (MyProfile) - Linux Foundation Documentation
Project leaders are always looking for new contributors. Some of the LF projects hold open committee meetings to discuss the direction of the project technology. Ask to join committee meetings as an observer to get more involved.
Being an observer is a fantastic resume builder and will help build your professional network. Reach out to your project mentor and ask how you can get involved in committee/working group meetings.
These are just a few things you can do post mentorship program. We would love to know how you are continuing to stay engaged in your open source communities.
