Junior Mentoring Program
As students transition to junior status, there are many changes that will take place in their lives. The Junior Mentoring Program is a one-semester program where junior CBA students are paired with young professionals in a mentoring relationship. Mentors help students prepare for their college careers, sharing their skills, knowledge and advice on how to balance college, work and personal life. Focus is given to resume building and professional development activities that will better prepare the students for the job market and complement their academic learning experience.
Enrollment is limited to students who meet the following requirements:
- Be in good standing with the University
- Have a minimum 2.5 GPA
- Be a member of SCPD
- Attend the SCPD Orientation
- Complete the application form
“I have gained various skills in successful resume building, thanks to my mentor. I was also exposed to, and asked to use, several social media websites that I was not aware of. Finally, I think my professional demeanor, in general, greatly benefited from this program.” J.M., 2013 mentee
