The 2017 registration for the Alumni Mentor Program is now open until Friday, Jan. 27 for Central Penn College students and alumni. This program provides students and alumni the opportunity to connect with each other one-on-one in a mentoring relationship. The mentor and mentee will both be paired together based on their career field and/or a common interest they share. They will also have the opportunity to structure the relationship how they would like, including how and when to communicate.

In a one-time mentoring session, students will gain knowledge and perspective of an industry, organization or culture, while getting feedback on personal and professional development. At the same time, mentors will serve as a role model and coach for their mentee by sharing their experience and knowledge on the future workforce.

This program does offer e-mentors for students and alumni outside of the Central Pennsylvania area. Students and their mentors can connect with one another via email, phone call, Skype, etc. Based on the interest, schedules and availability of both mentee and mentor, both are welcome to continue a mentoring relationship.

The main goal for the Alumni Mentor Program is to get students to sign up for a personal alumni mentor to expand their business network and to make career connections. The program provides the opportunity for students to gather career and professional advice for future references. “Students should absolutely take advantage of this opportunity”, says Sarah Blumenschein, director of alumni engagement. “You’ll be surprised by how much knowledge you gain from conversations with successful alumni. They have fantastic experience, and want to help in any way they can.”

If students are interested in connecting with a personal Alumni Mentor in their field of study or who shares a common interest go to www.centralpenn.edu/alumnimentor.
