How does it work for alumni?

What is expected of me as a mentor?

Who can see my profile information?

"The platform is super easy to use. I've met with three mentees so far and I've been impressed by their questions and genuine interest in my career experiences. I really like this format of mentoring vs. the traditional mentoring program as it's more fluid and as a mentor you have the ability to meet more students throughout the year to have a bigger impact. I've already recommended that my friends and colleagues sign up!"

"Met the mentee as planned and discussed topics that she suggested. I hope she got something out of the experience. Reflecting on my personal experience against what transpired, I think there is value in someone like an objective mentor without ties to the mentee for such a discussion. I wish I had the same experience as a younger undergraduate to get a better understanding of potential career opportunities--at least I hope that is what my mentee left thinking too!"
