Recent research has suggested that mentoring is a critical component to career success. Career mentoring (e.g., sponsorship, exposure and visibility, coaching, and protection) is distinct from psychosocial mentoring (e.g., role modeling, acceptance and confirmation, counseling, and friendship). The origins of this text lie in conversations among the editors about their experiences being mentored and mentoring students. Despite a mentor’s best attempt to provide guidance, there are things that we wished our mentors had told us or that we should have told our students. Thus, the present compendium, organized into three parts, presents an array of perspectives and suggestions on how career mentoring, psychosocial mentoring, and efforts to institutionalize mentoring can be adopted or adapted to make mentoring more effective.
