What makes you a good mentor?

The Carleton Engineering community has many, many amazing graduates, each with their own story and path. I hope that by sharing our experiences, we can help future alumni start on the right foot and in the right direction. My personal experiences have provided me with insight into many technical disciplines including those outside my field of study. However, they have also provided me with a substantial network of contacts and colleagues that I can leverage to provide answers to the questions that I may not be able to answer.
