As soon as I found out about ASCE’s new mentoring platform, ASCE Mentor Match, I became interested in the idea of mentoring. Throughout my college and early-career years, I was repeatedly reminded of the importance of having a mentor. Mentors are great because, most probably, they’ve already gone down the path you want to go, so when you are uncertain what your next step should be, mentors can give advice based on their personal experience. This is a huge advantage! Think about it, it is almost like having a crystal ball that allows you to see which decisions will get you where. At least that’s how I think about it.
