What Our Career Mentors Have to Say
Each student is looking forward to the next step in their journey, however sometimes does not know how or does not believe they can get there. Being the person to push them in the right direction with well thought out strategy and kind words of encouragement is what makes this position so gratifying.
As a Career Mentor, I love that I've gotten to help so many students in each step of the hiring process! I also enjoy meeting new students from all throughout campus and connecting with them. Being a Career Mentor is an extremely rewarding experience helping in whatever way the student needs, and especially when they find success in the career they desire.
My favorite part of being a Career Mentor is supporting students while they work towards their goals and begin their careers. From their first internship or graduate school application to applying for their first job in their field of study--watching students' confidence in themselves grow is incredibly rewarding!
