Finding and maintaining a professional mentor takes strategic intentionality.

Through founding UChicago’s Wisr platform, Volzer has seen a number of mentor-mentee relationships unfold and how those are navigated. Mentors can be a source of information, a connection into an industry you want to tap in to, a listening ear and foundation of support, and so much more. In this session, Volzer will be looking at how to find and create relationships with potential mentors in your life.
In this session you will learn how to:
