Maximizing the Mentorship Experience

Most students meet with their mentor five or six times during the semester. Meetings can be in person here at Barry Hall or on the main NDSU campus, at the mentor's workplace during business hours, or in a public place of business in the community. meetings also might be through email, via Skype, or by phone. In order to maximize your time:

  • Obtain appropriate clearances for their visit to or tour of your organization, if necessary.

  • Use their input to create a tentative schedule of activities for the office visits or job shadow experiences.
