Mentor Program

mentor and mentee studentThe 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.
