Employer/Mentor Thank you note:
As the end of the year approaches, I want you to practice writing a thank you note
to your worksite mentor(s). Handwritten notes are usually appropriate. Yet, if you
feel the situation warrants a formal touch, then compose your letter on a computer.
I will ask you to give your mentors a note at the end of the semester, so do a
good job and you will be able to use this one!!!
