thankful tuesdays: my first year as a mentor

Tonight was the wrap meeting for the Marquette College of Communication Mentoring Program for the 2008-09 school year. I can't believe how fast the time has flown since I first met my mentee in September!

I am so thankful that I lucked out and got the most rockstar mentee possible. Amanda was professional and courteous and really put a lot into our mentoring relationship. She made me want to be the best mentor possible. I was happy to review her resume, give her networking tips and pass her info along to my contacts. I was so proud of her when she landed a great internship with a local ad agency. Our "official" time is over, but I can't wait to hear about all the cool things she ends up doing with her career.

I really wish that they had a mentoring program when I was in college. I'm really glad to see that universities are realizing that their alumni have a lot more to offer than just cold hard cash. I definitely can't give up much of that, but I'm happy to dedicate my time and get to develop a great friendship as well!

I look forward to participating again next year.
