Too Long; Didn't Read
A skip level meeting between interns and their mentor’s manager helps you take advantage of those growth opportunities. The first rule of skip levels: do NOT schedule a skip level without first discussing it with the mentor. If done poorly it can undermine the mentor and create poor team dynamics. The first meeting is the intro meeting. The second meeting is probably your last chance to get feedback and provide an exceptional experience. The third and last meeting is a wrap-up meeting. This is probably the last chance and everything went well. Even if the picture isn’t rosy, you still want to have the best experience possible.
