Many times, a third party at your mentor’s workplace provided the information that you have in your Texan Shadow packet. Therefore, it is always best practice to review all information provided from the company with your mentor before the event.
For instance, the company’s definition of “Business Casual” and your definition may vary. Getting that clarification ahead of time from your mentor will save you the embarrassment of wearing the wrong attire, consequently leaving a negative impression about you and TSU. ** Some companies have strict specifications on tattoos, jewelry, piercings and attire, clarify these with your mentor before the Shadow.
Making a positive impression for yourself and TSU will potentially allow you to use this person as a contact in the field. All efforts should be made to develop a professional relationship with your mentor, if possible.
