Dear LOEX,
Formal mentoring usually pairs an experienced mentor with a newbie. Supervisors probably already informally mentor without realizing it. Those hallway chats you have about how your last class went, that’s peer mentoring! Check with your state or national library association or campus to see if a mentoring program already exists. Don’t forget, you can use technology to communicate—It doesn’t all have to be in person!
Happy mentoring!

Choosing the right setting is important. Find an activity that suits you both.

Don't forget to check your wallet before you head out the door.

Ask questions that will help you get to know each other.

Reading social cues, will there be a third date?
