We are pleased to announce that Career Services has just created an Alumni Mentor Program . This program will allow students, with permission, to connect with an alumni mentor to learn more about various occupations by receiving career information and valuable advice.
Alumni mentors provide information about their careers, answer career-related questions, and offer advice to students who are beginning to explore potential careers. Through the University Central online module, alumni mentors create a professional profile that will be visible to students who have received access to the system. After viewing your profile, students may e-mail you to find out more about your job and career path. As an alumni mentor, you could expect to be contacted by a current student who may be interested in learning more about the field you work in by asking questions such as:
-How did you get started?
-What do you like best/least about your current position?
-What advice do you have for a student who is interested in getting into your field?
We believe that this program will benefit students by giving them an opportunity to learn more about the world of work by connecting with professionals in their field. If you're interested in serving as a resource to our current students, please contact Career Services at 215-646-7300, ext. 230.
