Mentor Network-Program Overview


The Mentor Network is about meeting alumni who do things that interest your son/daughter. Whether they are exploring career options, looking for advice about the job/internship search, or hunting for an apartment in a new area, using the Mentor Network is a great way to get started.

The program consists of a database of SU alumni (over 800) who have volunteered to share their career experiences and advice with students and other alumni. All of these alums asked to be put into this database because they want to talk to your son/daughter about their career fields and organizations--they want to offer them insider advice about their career. These individuals have diverse academic backgrounds and represent many industries, career fields, job functions, and job locations. Alumni can act as a resource in many ways, including the following examples:

  • Provide company information
  • Outline job duties
  • Indicate employment trends (profession or industry)
  • Suggest job search strategies
  • Critique resumes
  • Set-up a job shadowing appointment
  • Give networking tips
  • Furnish relocation information
