  • Many companies have internal mentoring programs – which are great for high potential employees, but sometimes you just can’t be fully open and honest with a colleague…some matters are just too sensitive and could be held against you.Someone who’s been there and done itSomeone who will ask the right questions in a structured waySomeone who will help YOU find your own answers – not give you the answers
  • What is it?Is it important?What are the pitfalls?
  • Too generalAccess to a personal network – you are strangers!
  • Asking for a specific mentors – request 5 to 8 mentors at a time!Asking for a job!Asking for Visa assistance
  • Need to have respect for your mentor; Do not violate their privacy….BUT you should contact them directly right before your session.
  • No Linked In invite unless invited…no harrassing emails
