How does the Alumni Career Mentor Program work?

You will be matched with a student based on one or more of the following:

  • Skills
  • Profession
  • Location
  • Major

We'll take the information you provide through the Get Involved form—your skills, profession, location, and major—so that we can make the best possible match.

Once a match is made, you will be sent your mentee’s information. Your mentee will contact you within one week. If you can schedule an in-person meeting anytime during your mentorship, it makes for an even better experience—but is not required.

We only ask our alumni mentors for a three-month commitment, and to contact their mentee at least once a month. After three months if you want to continue, that’s great! If want another mentee, we can arrange that and you can always have more than one mentee.
