External Mentoring Program

Goal:

To inspire our undergraduate student members to find and reach their career goals and aspirations, by providing them the ability to foster relationships with professional business women in their area of interest.

Mentor/Mentee Matches:

Based on the student’s career goals and interests.

Requirements:

  • Meet one-on-one (mentor-to-mentee) at least once a month.
  • Attend the Mentoring Kickoff on date TBD- Mandatory**

**If you are unable to make this date, please let me know, as I would not want anyone to miss out on being provided a mentor for the year!

Results:

We hope that the mentors can share their professional experiences about transitioning from college to the working world, how students can make the most of their college experience to have a rewarding career, and any other professional advice or experiences the mentor would like to share.

Scheduled Activities: Not occurring this semester, but on a normal semester it would look like:

  • Kick-off event – TBD
  • Interview coaching event – TBD
  • Closing feedback event – TBD

Activities ideas for Mentors & Mentees:

  • Meet for lunch or coffee
  • Review resumes
  • Meet Mentor’s colleagues
  • Tour Mentor’s office
  • Meet virtually over Zoom
  • Phone call with your mentor
