What is a Mentor?
A Mentor is a person with vast knowledge and experience, who helps students and young professionals achieve their personal goals and advance in their professional careers.
The ideal Mentor is a senior professional who is experienced, knowledgeable, supportive, focused, caring, open-minded, and empathetic. In addition, ideal Mentors share similar values and goals with their students and young professionals and can serve as role models.
Perhaps the best definition of a Mentor is: "An older person from whose hindsight a young person acquires foresight."
