Treat internships and other mentoring like teamwork. Together, the mentor and mentee create a list of:
- an ambitious goal to be achieved during the mentorship,
- five types of work the mentee will do which help the mentor and/or the company,
- five types of things the mentee will learn with the help of the mentor and/or the company,
- when the mentoring will start and finish,
- a halfway point to review progress, and
- a regular schedule for work and meetings.
