Mentoring Objectives & Scope
I enjoy working with students to identify goals for post-graduation and a path towards success, both in career and life. I prefer to let the students drive the topics, based on what is top-of-mind in their world, and hope to offer practical advice and connections. I also appreciate learning what they are hearing and seeing as they move through their educational and professional experiences. You are likely to spend the majority of your waking hours with your career for 40 years or so. You better be doing something meaningful and working with the right people.
When and where do you hold meetings with your students?
At my office downtown, during the week - late afternoons are preferable
