How do you build a relationship with your mentor?

Recommended Posts


I've only had experiences with undergraduate research mentors, and so far I can't say I've had AMAZING ones. It seems many of my friends have had really great mentor experiences where they do really amazing things.

My experience seems to consist of me doing data entry, going to meetings, and doing independent research on my own. Don't get me wrong, my mentors have been great in the sense that I've learned a lot about HOW to think, and a lot about the topic. But I never really felt like I got to spend a lot of one on one time.

Also, I can be a bit shy around my mentors because I feel like I have to be very formal with them. I'm curious how can I be professional, but still open?
