Welcome to your career at Mayo Clinic, an organization annually ranked as one of Forbes magazine’s “America’s Best Employers”. If you or a family member just received an offer and is preparing for the first day, or is looking for resources during the first year with the organization, this page has a wide array of resources to help in the journey.

Engage with fellow new employees or ask a question by visiting our New Employee Connections group.

At several months into your career at Mayo Clinic, you have gained skills and can work productively. It is appropriate at this stage to offer suggestions, to still make mistakes, and to need training and coaching to work effectively. You fit into the work group and typically enjoy feeling part of the group.

Connecting with a purpose

Being a new employee, you may be looking for ways to not only make connections but to do so with a purpose. Volunteering at Mayo Clinic is an exciting and rewarding opportunity that matches caring people to services that interest them. Some Mayo employees volunteer to create a work/life balance and gain personal fulfillment.


Volunteers provide help and comfort to patients and their families who come to Mayo Clinic Hospital or as an outpatient. Volunteering offers people the opportunity to learn new skills, use existing skills, and meet new friends while providing important services to patients and their families. Flexible schedules are available. See their website for additional information and locations where volunteer opportunities exist.

The Talent Profile gives employees the opportunity to display professional strengths and to express career interests and goals.  The tools are useful to everyone, whether you're new to Mayo Clinic or have worked here for may years.

When you update your Talent Profile with work experiences, skills, education and certifications, you're providing your manager with information for career development discussions.  The information also helps your manager identify opportunities for, or and potential gaps in, achieving your career goals.  Managers can use the information to align your skills and knowledge with potential projects and assignments.

Access your Talent Profile via HR Connect.  Find the link under HR Systems Links navigation panel of the HR Connect home page.
