One of the noble acts that I am doing is mentoring. I may not be a qualified mentor, but certain inherent qualities make me a sincere participant in the sacred act.
It all started with a casual conversation with a young engineering graduate, a relation of my wife, who said she was struggling to prepare a resume for the campus placement.
I agreed to help her and discovered talent which was not apparent or known to even her parents. The result was a two pager which according to her, generated a lot of ooohs and haaas among her friends. And she aced the recruitment by getting offers from all five companies visiting her campus.
Hence I started a mentoring process starting with a prospective mentee’s resume. I have well over 60 mentees from this route.
This coupled with a knack for networking and a formidable reputation as a good empathetic fellow, saw some successes. But I am still searching for bringing to the world the hidden talents of a future celebrity.
I just saw some quality writing skills and entered into a pact with one and I hope my search will find traction here.
Overall a very satisfying thought.
Yes, I am excited……
