Presentation Title Mentoring Best Practices for Interns: Panel Discussion

On-Site Speaker (Planned) Jonathan A. Zimmerman
Abstract Scope Internships are an often-used mechanism within industry and national laboratories to access skills and abilities of students from top universities, and to assess new talent soon entering the workforce. Mentors at these organizations often lack training and have infrequent interactions with students, resulting in bad practices that limit the effectiveness of the mentor-intern relationship and can potentially damage their institution’s reputation. This session will convene an experienced panel of industry and national laboratory representatives – as well as former student interns – to discuss and exchange knowledge, tools and techniques to enable mentors to be more effective in their role. The diversity of this panel will provide lessons learned from fundamental research to application-based projects. Mentoring best practices and the resulting benefits will be shared with session attendees. Panel lessons will be communicated to the broader materials community through an out-brief report on points raised and information shared. The panel includes: Jonathan Zimmerman, Sandia National Laboratories (Moderator); Simona Hunyadi Murph, Savannah River National Laboratory; Clarissa Yablinsky, Los Alamos National Laboratory (staff and former intern); Chris San Marchi, Sandia National Laboratories; Rachel Seibert, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (former intern); Paul Prichard, Kennametal; Bill Clark, Intel (former intern at Hitachi Global Storage Technology); Garritt Tucker, Colorado School of Mines (former SNL intern).
