This debriefing session focuses on helping understand how you as a person have grown through the MFP experience and how you have influenced the learning experiences of your fellow classmates. In particular, we will be focusing on three different topics related to career issues during the class.
1) How have your attitudes toward entrepreneurship changed over the past year?
2) What are your key strengths (as identified by your classmates)?
3) How can you combine your strengths with your interests to start thinking about your career options?
Please re-read your original MFP application essay describing why you wanted to participate in the Mayfield Fellows Program.
Due Friday, November 29th at noon. Please email the teaching team and teaching assistant directly. DO NOT SEND TO THE WHOLE LIST.
Please read your original MFP application essay and send the teaching team and the teaching assistant a few paragraphs describing how your attitudes have changed since writing this essay almost a year ago. Please let us know if your attitudes have changed as a result of the MFP class, your summer internship, world events, specific ETL speakers, etc. Also, let us know if any of the thoughts expressed in your essay have been strengthened.
Please feel free to include a description of the changes in your attitude about business in general, your feelings about entrepreneurship specifically, your perspective on your career, and any other key changes in your point of view.
We will be compiling the information and sharing it anonymously, so please be candid.
We would like each of you to help each other identify your key strengths. Please annotate the list of your classmates below, making a list of positive attributes for each person. (Please exclude yourself from the list.)
