Dear Mentor, I think it's time we see other people. 
Finding a mentor is important as you grow your career but this is one relationship that doesn't need to last forever.

I want to discuss the importance of situational mentorship, ensuring you have a number of mentors to lean on for a variety of issues impacting you and your career.
