Reviews:

Here are just two reviews of the Digital Mentoring experience:

16 Aug 2018: I heard about this tool by one of the advisors. So I tried it out when I was having a little trouble with a recent job interview and talking to Justin Hannah, I was able to get some insight in his own similar experiences, which in turn helped me move on from this interview.

18 Mar, 2019: I had a 40 minute phone call with Justin Hannah and he was an amazing resource! With graduation approaching and job applications in full swing I had lots of questions for him about his experiences. He offered lots of helpful and very honest advice (and moral support:) ). I definitely recommend that anyone looking for advice on the tech space give him a call!
