Following your kickoff meeting, you will update your mentor once a week with an email containing a video.
1. Draft Your Weekly Update Script
Draft a video script of your update for your Mentor-Guide. You can use the Week 1 video update script template of another template for updates. At a minimum, your video update must include:
Goals accomplished OR a big lesson learned from the past week; AND
Question for your Mentor-Guide (to discuss in your final conversation); AND
Goals for next week.
2. Record Your Weekly Update Video
The goal is to act as if you're speaking to your Mentor Guide face-to-face, so the less you look at your script, the better.
Consider these best practices and record in a well-lit space to ensure high-quality audio and video.
Save your video to Google Drive and set it to viewable by anyone (important!).
3. Draft Your Weekly Update Email
Write an email to your Mentor-Guide with a link to your update video. You can use this weekly update email template.
Repeat steps 1-4 for each week of your mentorship.
After sending your fourth update, proceed to Wrap Up Instructions
