This correlational field study examined the effect of mentoring relationships on job satisfaction and examined faculty member’s perceptions of the effectiveness of the mentoring relationship. Many factors cause faculty members to leave the field of academia, and the cost to replace employees is expensive. Mentoring relationships relate significantly and positively to job satisfaction. By understanding the protégés perception of the mentoring relationship, organizations can find ways to improve the employee’s performance, thus assisting organizations to maintain a competitive advantage. The sample used for this study was military and civilian faculty located at the United States Air Force Academy. Of the 614 solicited participants, 176 responded for a response rate of 29%. Findings suggest that faculty members with mentors have higher levels of job satisfaction than faculty members without mentors. The perceptions of protégés with regard to the effectiveness of the mentoring relationship on job satisfaction did not reveal significant results.
