Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I encourage students to ask any and all questions. Questions can relate to KPMG, tax, public accounting, school, goal setting or career development, but are certainly not limited to those fields. Students can expect timely, honest communication from me during our conversations as well as a face-to-face meeting at least once per quarter. My expectation from my mentee is timely, honest communication and commitment to the action plan we establish.
