Mentoring Opportunity for Penn State Grads
Penn State Liberal Arts Alumni Mentor Program. The College of Liberal Arts has reached out to the PSU NYC Chapter about a mentoring opportunity for local alums.
Please see details below.
What the Program Is:
The program is a collaborative effort between the Career Enrichment Network and Alumni Relations in the College of the Liberal Arts, and matches current undergraduate Liberal Arts students with alumni in a field related to their major and/or career interests. Students will be returning to campus in the next few weeks and Fall is our biggest time for the mentor program! Mentors do not need to be local. Students and mentors usually speak once a month or every other week via phone or Skype.
How Alumni Can Help Students:
• Serve as a resource, provide guidance, and share your expertise to promote student success.
• Act as a sounding board, assist with internship and job searches, and encourage students to development new skills
• Talk to students about post-PSU life and their future plans
• Remain connected to the College and University by working with students, attending on-campus events, and participating in other career development opportunities.
Leave a Legacy and Make an Impact:
You can foster and support the next generation of Penn State and Liberal Arts alumni. Give back with your time, commitment, and knowledge. There are many talented students who are beginning to think about post-graduation plans and are interested in connecting with alumni. Students greatly appreciate the dedication alumni have to helping current Nittany Lions achieve their goals!
