Part of the formal internship program is getting involved in the mentorship program BAE offers as well. On my first day, I met my mentor who has his MBA from UMUC. At first I was nervous because I did not know what to expect; I have never had a formal mentor nor did I know what to expect out of this mentorship. In our first meeting, we went over what each of us wanted to get out of the mentorship program, specifically what aspects of my skill set he could help me improve upon. He even told me if I even needed to vent or just talk about last night episode of Tosh.0, then he would try his best to be available. It was really great to know that my mentor is so open and wouldn’t judge me for asking some seemingly obvious questions.
