Serving as a mentor brings many challenges and rewards, with the best mentors working to shape their mentees into other leaders, rather than just good followers. If done well, the long term impact of mentoring can offer life changing benefits to both parties.
An effective mentoring relationship is characterized by mutual respect, trust, understanding, & empathy. Good mentors are able to share life experiences and wisdom, as well as technical expertise. They are good listeners, good observers, and good problem-solvers. They make an effort to know, accept, and respect the goals and interests of a student. In the end, they establish an environment in which the student's accomplishment is limited only by the extent of his or her talent.
We’re incredibly proud of the relationships that we have with our Mentors. Not only are their skills and previous experience invaluable to the education of their students, they also have a profound effect upon the way we are able to successfully place our students in good positions across industries.
