Did you have a mentor or even several mentors in your life who have guided you in your career, opened doors for you to various opportunities and provided much-need inspiration and support for you as you progressed in your professional or personal life? Are you immensely grateful for their contributions to your life and wondered what made them such amazing mentors?

Are you now considering giving back by being a mentor to someone else, but perhaps you are unsure how to be an effective mentor who can make a positive impact on the career or other aspects of your mentee?   Or if you are already mentoring others, perhaps you want to learn other tips and best practices of mentoring, such as providing constructive feedback that is well-received, providing guidance on overcoming challenges, or giving the necessary help needed for your mentees to reach their potential?

Our panelists will discuss how a mentor can be a trusted advisor by providing the right kind of support and inspiration, always keeping their mentee’s best interests in mind, and in return, gaining valuable experience and respect along the way.

Robin Edelstein, VP, Talent of  Equilibrium Solutions, LLC, brings a wealth of knowledge and real-world experience to Equilibrium Solutions. She has experience in all aspects of talent acquisition across a spectrum of industries and corporate cultures. For Robin, talent acquisition isn’t just about filling job orders. Her commitment is about connecting passionate, qualified people with companies and well-informed hiring managers. Robin knows a thing or two about pursuing passions – she received her degree in Literature and Communications from Pace University, a certificate in Screenwriting from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Grand Diploma in Culinary Arts from The French Culinary Institute and is a Reiki Practitioner. After a brief hiatus from the staffing world to pursue a career as a professional Chef, Robin admitted that her real passion was back in recruitment. So, in 2013, she happily reclaimed her spot in the talent acquisition space to make her dream job a reality. Robin has a knack for quickly and intuitively assessing a recruitment infrastructure while balancing current hiring needs with long-term solutions. When not on the hunt for talent, she collaborates with business leaders to develop strategic workforce planning. Robin is adept at guiding candidates, internal recruiters, and hiring managers through the process, so to create the best recruitment experience for all involved. Robin’s ultimate career goal is building out a full-cycle recruitment process and watching it produce positive results; happy employees and employers alike!
