Summary transcript for 23 May 2013 #AWCchat: Finding and Being a Mentor

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 55th #AWCChat on Twitter, about mentoring.

Here is what we discussed:

1)  What does the term “mentor” mean to you? Is it a buzzword, or is there real meat behind it?

2)  If “everyone says” you should have a mentor (or 2) then how does one acquire this magic person?  🙂

3)  If you’re in a position to be a mentor yourself, what holds you back?

Don’t miss all of the helpful how-to Resource links we tweeted, either.

Summary transcript for 2 Feb 2012 #AWCchat: mentoring

Thanks to everyone who participated in our ninth #AWCChat on Twitter, on the topic of mentoring.

There were four questions for discussion during this chat:

1)   If you’re new to a field or are considering a career change, how can you find a mentor in the new field BEFORE you start working in it?

2)   If you are or have been a mentor, how would you like to be asked/approached to work with someone?

3)   Should women mentor each other more?

4)   Are social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook appropriate for approaching possible mentors? How about LikedIn?

Additional resource links were included in the chat.

**  On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 2 Feb chat on mentoring.

The next #AWCChat is scheduled for 9 February 2012, on the topic of whether you still need a resume or CV in 2012.
