Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I can provide guidance to students towards a career in the financial services industry with insights on how to make themselves marketable for employment and to provide a long-term path towards developing a successful career. I'll help review and guide a student on courses to pay particular attention related to career objectives, assist in interview skills and building an effective resume. I would expect a student to be open to discussion, with or without clear goals, we need to be able to talk to identify what's important to them. 

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

At Seattle University or a coffee shop that are mutually convenient.
