Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I am looking to help undergraduate students begin their careers, specifically within the financial services field. I am more than happy to assist with resume/cover letter writing, mock interviews and demystifying the hiring process, networking discussions, and sharing insights from my 10+ years in the financial services industry, both in Seattle and New York. However, I would leave it up to the student and try to accommodate their needs and interests as much as possible.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

I am open to either virtual or in-person meetings, preferably in the afternoon/evening on or near campus.
