Becoming a Mentor Today
What is The mentor program all about?
Our school has established a forum for alumni willing to mentor and advise current students of the school who are preparing to enter the work force. The Alumni Network is designed to facilitate the interaction of alumni and provide a positive and lasting impact in the life of a young graduate by offering advice on such issues as gaining employment, including interviewing tips, information on types of firms and their idiosyncrasies, advantages of different size firms, salary expectations, career advice after employment, juggling personal life and career, alternative career paths and career planning. Our goal is to offer our graduates a competitive edge.
How does it work?
Alumni sign up as mentors to current students and/or recently graduated alumni by registering and providing information about their current job, workplace and general career information, which is posted on the web in a searchable database.
Students and alumni can search the database to survey general information about alumni career paths, or they can find mentors who might be able to help them. Once they are registered, they can contact a mentor directly.
Once a mentor confirms that s/he is available for contact, the mentor and student can communicate through the medium of their preference - we recommend E-mail. E-mail is the best way for students to contact mentors initially -- especially if the mentor lives out of the local area. Please indicate how you would like to be contacted. Mentors provide students with information about their experience and knowledge and can offer them connections to the working world.
Who May Use the Mentor Network?
The Alumni Network database may be viewed by anyone, but access to mentor contact information is available exclusively to currently enrolled students and alumni. The system administrator will verify alumni/student status. There is no fee for using the Network.
