Information for Alumni
After our studies, navigating the workforce can be overwhelming with opportunities and potential career directions growing increasingly plentiful. Through mentorship, even if speedy, you’ll have the chance to offer guidance to current students by sharing your experiences in the workforce.
Get in the mentoring frame of mind by recalling your experiences approaching graduation. What tips would you give yourself now? Think about the questions that you had leading up to graduation.
Here are some that you may receive from students:
- How did you get your job?
- What do you like most/least about your job?
- What was your experience finding a job after graduation?
- How did you decide on your career path?
- What advice can you offer students approaching graduation?
- How did you adjust to work after finishing your studies?
Prepare a snapshot of your career development experiences and your career direction. Prepare prompting questions to encourage shy or nervous students during your conversations. These may include general questions about the student’s field of study or career interests.
We encourage continuing the conversations outside of the event and invite you to provide a business or connection card to students.
Following the event, we’ll be touching base with all of our alumni participants and providing information for one-on-one mentorship with current students. Interested? Stay tuned!
