  • Learn about each mentor’s background and career progression by viewing their professional bios in an online database.
  • Indicate your preferences to be matched with one of your mentor selections.
  • Work with your mentor to decide how you want to structure the relationship, how often and where you want to meet, and what you hope to gain from the relationship.
  • Expand your network of business contacts and resources.
