Mentoring Objectives & Scope
As a mentor, I would like to share my experiences and try to help students understand the opportunities and pitfalls to keep an eye out for in their careers. I'm a good listener, open to any discussion topics, and will offer advice if desired.
When and where do you hold meetings with your students?
During working hours, either at my office, or I can meet them near campus.
I'm not your typical Type A consultant, but I'm a straight shooter who will be open and frank with his advice. I'll say it nicely and in a helpful manner, but I'll be honest with my thoughts and opinions. I prefer discussions over coffee or other libations.
