Mentoring Objectives & Scope

Some of the topics: finding a job, work life balance, interviewing skills, social media, resumes, choosing a career, and more...

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

After twelve years with the Albers Mentor Program I continue to enjoy passing on useful information to students as they face change in their work/life journey. However, now that I have made a change, managing my financial practice from the Midwest, my mentor sessions will be primarily video conferences. So, though I plan to visit Seattle several times each year, the reality is that you’ll need to be comfortable with the expectation of meeting monthly online.
