The Mentor Program is one of Manhattan College’s most popular and successful career development programs. As a participant, you will be matched with a professional mentor (often a Manhattan College alum) who works in your intended industry or career, and you will spend the year learning about opportunities within the field. Aside from required orientations, a meet-and-greet and an end-of-year dinner, all activities are up to the mentor and mentee.
Scheduled activities typically include:
shadowing your mentor at his/her workplace
reviewing your resume
participating in a mock interview
discussing career goals, job expectations and employment trends
attending a networking event
taking a company tour
contributing to a company project
attending a company meeting
participating in a professional development workshop together
The Mentor Program is also an excellent way for alumni to give back to Manhattan College and have a positive impact on younger Jaspers.
