Grow: You've received your mentoring pairs - Now what?

Mentees - It's time to make the first call to schedule your first mentor meeting.

Think about what you would like to get out of your meeting, whether you simply introduce yourself, review your professional New Year's resolutions for 2008, or receive advice about current workplace issues. Maybe you read an interesting article that sparks discussion, or perhaps you'll attend an AWNY or industry event and the discuss topics of interest afterward. You can meet anywhere - at your mentor's office, over coffee, drinks, lunch or dinner, at an event, or at a mutually convenient location. The sooner you initiate your first mentor/mentee meeting, the more you'll get out of the program this year - so make that call soon!

Comment on this post to give other AWNY Mentoring members ideas and inspiration for their first meeting.
