A wizard waves his wand, a magician produces a rabbit, a fairy godmother casts her spells; the
magic of mentoring comes from connections! Ask a person you respect, "How did you get to
where you are today?" Chances are there were important people who guided them in their
learning and on their career path. Mentors make significant impacts on lives. Institutions of
higher education and corporations strive to employ communities of teachers, coaches and
mentors who are motivated to develop their students and employees into intelligent, productive
individuals. While other books address the needs of the mentor, this book helps university
students take action to create a solid working plan to achieve this important bond.
Mentoring Magic: Pick the Card for Your Success is a guidebook for students in higher education who want the tools and resources
needed to network with professionals who can help guide them to a successful career upon graduation. If you are an international
student wanting to achieve academic success, studying abroad to expand cultural understanding, or if you want to gain practical
experience beyond the classroom with a mentor, the opportunities are endless. Engaging stories and specific guidance from current
and former students will explain why mentors are needed, how to find a mentor, and how to sustain the relationship throughout future
careers. Demystify the magic of mentoring for future success.
