Mentors represent a valuable tool for student career development. Take a look at David Cutler’s article about the significance of mentors: Career Mentorship: The Lost Education. As you read the article, think about the current people in your life who could serve as a mentor to you. Ideally, a suitable mentor would be someone who is significantly more experienced that you. Their experience will help guide you through the career development process. Mentorships can be formal or informal. In formal mentorships, the mentor and mentee meet on a regular basis and are typically structured in nature. Informal mentorships often allow for the development of a close bond between the mentor and mentee. The structure of your mentorship is up to you. You must determine what type of structure will be of most value to you.
