Mentoring Objectives & Scope
Preparation for the work world and what companies are looking for. Experience is not the key. Attitude and finding the right fit (you for them and them for you) are key. How will you spend the bulk of the next 40 years? It better be doing something you love - and working for, or with, a company that aligns with your values.
When and where do you hold meetings with your students?
Virtual meetings as schedules allow at this point. Afternoon meetings in my office in downtown Seattle when things are back to normal.
