Abstract: Young teachers are the main force for the future development of universities and colleges. For individual young teachers, the degree of career satisfaction directly influences their working enthusiasm. A questionnaire survey is conducted among 300 young teachers from eight universities and colleges in China to study the relationship between mentoring relationship and career satisfaction of young college teachers, as well as the moderating effect of the type of mentoring relationship and the gender of mentee on such relationship. Results indicate that mentoring relationship has a significant positive effect on the career satisfaction of young college teachers. In addition, the type of mentoring relationship and the gender of mentee, as moderating variables, both have a moderating effect on the relationship between the mentoring relationship and career satisfaction of young college teachers, but they do not have a combined moderating effect.

Keywords: mentoring relationship; young college teachers; career satisfaction; formal mentoring; informal mentoring; gender; moderating effect.
