6. Communicate it: Explicitly notify your mentor about the closure.

5. Reflect on Growth: Consider your accomplishments, skills developed, and personal and professional progression.

4. Share Your Success: Discuss your achievements and insights with your mentor for satisfying mutual closure.

3. Express Gratitude: Show appreciation to your mentor for their time, wisdom, and unwavering support.
