Mentoring Objectives & Scope
I've always enjoyed mentoring and having mentors myself. This started during undergrad where I regularly interacted with other students and those in industry to help guide my collegiate experience to set me up for success in the workforce. I continue this today through my professional network. I look forward to "giving back" to current students and would be happy to mentor on a variety of topics ranging from: resume/ interview help, provide context and/or outside perspective to project work, provide guidance on career choices/ weigh pros & cons, navigating challenging situations, etc.
When and where do you hold meetings with your students?
Happy to come to campus area.
Former direct reports regularly seek me out for ongoing career advice and coaching- I think I have a fairly transparent and realistic approach to the challenges & opportunities we face in industry today. I love engaging with curious/ questioning people!
