Mentoring Objectives & Scope
I consider myself to be pretty laid back and want to be able to provide Mentees with answers to questions they might be uncomfortable asking professionals in more formal settings. I plan to take Mentees on an office tour, introduce them to other professionals, help with resumes, or anything else they feel they need advice on.
Although I am the Mentor, I want my Mentees to take the driver's seat on what they want to gain out of this experience.
When and where do you hold meetings with your students?
I prefer to meet on or around the Seattle University campus as well as Downtown Seattle. Lunchtime is preferred, but evenings can be planned as well.
Come curious and be prepared
