While area of interest will be a primary driver in identifying mentors, efforts will be made to identify mentors geographically close to where the mentee intends to move after graduation. Mentor a Masters student, and advise how to adjust to VLS and succeed professionally by:
When you signed up to serve as a mentor you wereadded to our Mentor Network, meaning you could be matched any time between October 1, 2016 and July 1, 2017. Once a student opts into the program, they must provide information on their interests in regard to area of specialty and geographic range following graduation, provide their resume, etc. Based on that information, Career Services works to match the student with a mentor who shares commonalities with the student. OIA will then notify the mentor of the match opportunity. The mentor has the option to accept or decline the relationship.
