SCiL 2019 Mentoring Session Mentee Questionnaire
This is the form for those interested in being a mentee in the SCiL 2019 mentoring sessions. These are no-strings-attached events in which you are paired up with senior colleague mentors and discuss problems and questions you may have concerning your future career.
We are planning three mentoring sessions: one "virtual" session before the conference, one informal gathering (e.g. a lunch or happy hour) during the conference, and another virtual session in the weeks following the conference. Participation in one does not necessitate participation in the others.
Virtual sessions will be conducted via Skype (or your favorite video chat program) during the first half of December.
The following questions will help us in assigning you a mentor.
