Mentoring Expectations

Mentoring Expectations for the Student

-          What are your goals for this mentoring relationship? What do you hope to achieve through the mentorship?

 

-          What actions can you and your mentor take to achieve these goals?

 

-          What kind of mentor would you like?

 

-          Most mentees meet with their mentor via telephone. If you desire in-person meetings, request a mentor in your target area.  Or, consider a mentor in the city where you are interested in working.

 

 

Timing

-          Don’t delay. Once you get a mentor match, contact your mentor (email or phone) within a week.

 

-          Officially, the mentor/mentee relationship is the school year, but may extend longer. 

-          A starting point is to attach your resume to your initial email to introduce your background.

 

-          Establish when and how you will contact each other

 

-          Can you set up a schedule of phone meetings?
