Mentor for a Morning

Be very aware of the Ides of this March.  Executives on Campus (EOC), the GCMC and the SCDC hosted their annual Mentor for a Morning at the Conference Center of the Newman Vertical Campus.  Against the midtown skyline mentors and mentees spoke about career development, the work environment and the balance between life and work.

Mentees (Graduate and Under-Grad) have been matched with mentors with whom they have an affinity. We had the benefit of serious people at all rungs of the career ladder and from all corners of industry (e.g. finance, marketing, Real Estate, Entrepreneurship, Accounting, Public Relations etc).  From CEOs to start-up entrepreneurs, there was someone for everyone here.

The two mentors with whom I met were good fits and had lots to share — guidance on career path to general outlook.  The format for the morning were short 45-minute “sessions”.  The entire operation was smooth and moved like clockwork.

If you attended, share your comments below.  If you missed it, put this event in your list for next year.  Many thank yous to our mentors.  Your time, opinions (and patience) are so welcome.  Thank you.
