Well done Jenn, this post effectively captures the essence of mentoring. I've done some informal mentoring on my last year of college and it's true that while it may seem daunting at first, it is very rewarding in the long run. Also props for the check-in outline, that's pretty solid ;)
Where do you do online mentoring? I wouldn't mind being a mentor and a mentee.
I haven't done online mentoring in ages. But I have mentored over Twitter, IRC, Slack, video chat, and email.
I'll have to do a follow-up piece on how to find mentors.
This follow-up article idea is great! I'm looking forward to reading it!
