Career Mentor Program

As part of our professional development initiative, we match participating students with a USI alumnus in their field of study. The activities for mentors and their students may include job shadowing, professional group meetings, introductions to other professionals in a career field, assistance with preparing resumes, mock interviews, as well as being exposed to the day to day operations/projects. Students gain insight into their field of study while building networks, asking questions and listening carefully to those who were once in their shoes. Open to juniors, seniors and graduate students.

Kickoff Reception

A kickoff reception will be scheduled for January on the USI campus. Closer to the event date, more details will be provided. The purpose of this reception is to introduce each mentor to the student with whom they’ve been matched as well as present an overview of the program. Following the kickoff reception, it is the student's responsibility to follow up and confirm scheduled appointments with their Career Mentor or Day on the Job host to ensure a successful experience.
