Suggestions for the First Meeting

Page address:
  • Share background information about yourselves
  • Discuss both of your views regarding different mentor models (found at the Mentor Match website) and the mentee’s desires for this particular mentor relationship
  • Try to keep communication open and come to an agreement as to how this mentor relationship will continue (ie: not a good match – no future meetings; possibly a good match – let’s set a time to meet again for a longer amount of time; definitely seems to be a good match – can I contact you whenever I need you or let’s set up some regular times to meet.)
