Seeking volunteers for the CSE Mentor Program
Each fall, more than 200 CSE students are matched with industry professionals who provide valuable career information, insights, and strategies. The College of Science and Engineering Mentor Program, which begins in October and ends in April every school year, is one of the largest of its kind at the University of Minnesota. Students learn to build their professional network, refine communication skills, connect academics and career, explore new areas of interest, and transition to the workplace.
Now perhaps more than ever, our students can benefit from advice and guidance about preparing for and transitioning into their future career. Mentors don't need to be U of M graduates to participate, and mentors of all experience levels - from fresh out of college to retired - are welcome. This year’s program will be mainly virtual. Sign up by September 25 to be matched with a student in early October. The time commitment is generally 1-2 hours per month.
