Mentors can play a pivotal role in equipping students and recent graduates for their careers in any or all of the following ways:

  • Discuss how your education prepared you for your career
  • Ask questions about a student's gifts and passions
  • Share information about a current event or issue in your field
  • Recommend helpful networking strategies
  • Introduce your student to colleagues or other contacts
  • Offer guidance on where to look for job/internships in your field
  • Critique your student's resume and/or cover letter
  • Lead your student through a mock interview

NOTE: MENTORS ARE NOT TO PROVIDE NOR ARE THEY EXPECTED TO PROVIDE ADVICE ON VISAS AND EXTENSIONS.  MENTEES SHOULD SEEK ADVICE FROM APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES.
