"My mentor helped me a lot. Firstly, I was trying to learn all of the technology/software, but my mentor helped me narrow down what I should learn and how-to expertise in those areas. Secondly, I got the guideline on creating a plan to develop myself or a roadmap to arrive at a data-related career. Finally, a discussion with my mentor about my resume and specific job postings helped me get this position."

A mentee is someone who has a specific personal and professional goal, and who will work with a mentor to create a plan to achieve those goals.

We expect the highest level of discipline and proactiveness from our mentees. It is your responsibility to follow up with your mentors and implement any feedback your mentor will provide you with.
