Mentor Meetings - Clarification

posted Sep 16, 2013, 11:09 PM by Research Challenge India

Please note that Face to Face Mentor meetings are only feasible where both  Mentor as well as the College is in the same city and the mentor can allocate separate time slot for meeting students. For all colleges, it’s best to conduct meetings with Mentors via conference call over telephone.

Best Practices for conference call :

  • Schedule: please check with the Mentor few days in advance (preferably email) regarding his schedule and fix up a suitable time to call. Please be mindful that all industry professionals have taken an extra initiative to mentor your team and hence, please respect their time and busy schedule.
  • Agenda: send agenda/queries to mentors well in advance before the conference call to ensure an effective and smooth meeting.
  • Time Log: for all meetings please maintain a time log on :
  • Confirmation email: send a confirmatory email to Mentor regarding points discussed and clearly chart out action points and follow up dates.
  • Guidelines: please adhere to the guidelines mentioned on following link:

Students are advised to apprise their industry mentors about their schedule of company presentation and written report submission deadline asap. If the Mentor is not available/busy during that time frame, please let us know in advance so that we can arrange for an alternate.
