Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I hope to help students pursue careers in investments. The industry can be difficult to navigate, particularly in Seattle, since most of the firms are smaller boutiques and do not have formal recruiting processes. I can also provide general interviewing and resume advice.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Mostly virtual
