Mentoring Objectives & Scope

Normally, I like to work with two or three students. I usually split the time between providing some one-on-one coaching and trying to give the students an understanding of how a Fortune 500 company works. The company perspective comes from the students selecting three or four topics that they'd like to understand better and then company leaders share Nordstrom's perspective on that topic.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

I prefer to meet in my office in the downtown Nordstrom store during regular business hours.
