Since my mentor and I have many similar interests including new technology, gadgets and performance driving, I'm sure that we will have another casual car-themed get together sometime in the Spring - possibly racing up on Mission Raceway.
I've been part of the UBC Executive Mentorship Program for four years and have really enjoyed being a mentor to the bright, capable and motivated students I've had the fortune to meet. I'm energized by their passion and drive. The program itself is extremely professional and well organized with lots of opportunities for check-ins and feedback.
The Executive Mentorship Program has provided me with the opportunity to connect with professionals in the accounting field. My mentor has provided me with one-on-one coaching to prepare my transition into the workforce. It has definitely added value to my educational experience at Sauder.
All in all, it was incredible. [My mentor] helped me along with my resume, and said that he'll introduce me to the marketing team of EA next time we meet. Oh, did I mention he offered to take me to a Canucks game? What a guy!
