Helping Young Professionals Chart & Stay on the Right Career Path “Dr. Mulligan’s book is a significant contribution to higher education and the work place. Students in college and recent college graduates at work can identify and obtain a Career Mentor connected either to the college, their employer or family and use The Route 5 Career Pathway Plan in this book to help them chart and stay on the right career path”. Dr. William V. Muse, Past President of the University of Akron, President of Auburn University, and Chancellor of East Carolina University. Dr. Mulligan wrote My Career Mentor & Me to provide a process that the Career Mentor can use to help the young professional, mentee, chart the right career path, prepare for and obtain targeted positions, be the best in their positions and manage a successful and rewarding career journey. Dr. Mulligan divided this manual into four sections. The first section of the book defines a mentor and discusses The Triangle Mentoring Team concept. The first mentor is the Family Support Mentor (helps find Career Mentor and provides support). The second mentor is the Career Mentor (college advisor, college alum, company manager or?). The third is the Specialty Mentor who provides information and help in completing tasks. The second section describes the three stages of the One-On-One Performance Facilitation and Helping Process that the Career Mentor and mentee will execute. The third section asks the Career Mentor and mentee to execute the three stages of the One-On-One Performance Facilitation and Helping Process. The first stage calls for developing a working relationship. The second stage asks the Career Mentor and mentee to develop the Route 5 Career Pathway Plan. The third stage asks the mentee to complete tasks to meet the growth objectives of the Career Pathway Plan. The fourth section asks the mentee to review their Route 5 Career Pathway Plan with the Family Support Mentor, make necessary changes and then work with the Career Mentor to meet the growth objectives of the Plan. Over 12 self assessments are in the book plus a partnership contract for the Career Mentor and mentee to sign.
