Who is your mentor?

How to Use

Interviewer: Who is your mentor?

Jon: My mentor is James Black. James is currently the editor of the Boston Globe newspaper. I met him when I was a junior reporter and he was a senior reporter for a financial magazine called Boom or Bust.

Interviewer: How has he helped you in your career?

Jon: James has taught me a lot. He taught me how to do thorough research and how to make sure all the details of a story are correct before publishing it. Basically, he taught me how to be a professional reporter. Without him, I don't think I would have been successful.

Interviewer: Do you still keep in touch with him?

Jon: Yes, I do. I usually talk to him about once a week. We usually talk about current events and what is in the news, but I also still ask him for advice sometimes.

Interviewer: You are lucky that you have somebody like James that you can go to for advice.

Jon: I agree. I'm lucky to have worked with James.
