[Virtual] Being An Effective Mentee

Thursday, January 27, 2022
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

event affiliation:


In any mentorship, the ultimate goal should be to cultivate a meaningful relationship that is mutually beneficial for the mentor and mentee. Fostering this kind of relationship takes time, clear communication of expectations, and setting well-defined goals that give mentors an understanding of how they can benefit their mentee’s career and life aspirations. For mentees, reversing the question “What do you expect from your mentor?” can help shift their mindset to actively seek opportunities to add value to their mentorship in a way that will shape a promising connection into a respected, long-lasting professional relationship.

Join the Young Professionals Council for a discussion with Michele Gianforcaro and Rita DiCarlo from Villanova School of Business, as well as a mentor and mentee pair, as they examine what makes an effective, dynamic relationship. Learn how to clearly communicate what you’re looking to gain out of your mentorship, what kind of questions to ask mentors that will help further your relationship, and how to set the tone as a dedicated mentee that not only shows a willingness to be taught and grow but one who returns as much value as they are being given.
