The More You Know - The Better You Understand
8. Is it best for me to prepare a list of questions for my mentoring session?

But only you can direct the discussion to ensure your time is well spent. Best to be prepared and get a great deal out of your session.

No way. Career Redo Mentors will convey to you the overview and details of the career field in which you are interested. They have seen people fail and people success. Your time with them should focus on the elements of that field. They are not there to provide life guidance like a career or life coach. Those type coaches don’t really know the details of your desired career. This item in our career faq can be useful.
