Career Services developed an online Mentoring Network to provide students the opportunity to connect with professionals in their chosen field of study. Mentors are a great resource for individuals investigating career options. Mentors can:
- Allow students to shadow you on the job to see if it is something you'd like to do someday.
- Answer questions about the profession or industry during an informational interview.
- Conduct mock interviews.
- Critique their cover letter or resume.
- Help them find resources within a geographic area or industry.
- Help them learn the importance of networking with professionals.
- Alumnae/i and friends of Shepherd are volunteering to serve as mentors to current and former students of the school.
