A mentor helps to ease the awkward moments upon entering the museum profession. Remember how you didn’t know anyone at your first conference, you didn’t even know the “dress code” or who to call when you stumbled over projects at work?
A mentor helps you blossom into a more meaningful contributor to the museum community.
A mentoree reminds the experienced professional of the “good ol’ days” and the excitement and wonderment of starting something new.
A mentor and mentoree can become lifelong friends.
