When it comes to your career, mentors give you a great advantage. Their experience and expertise help you set and accomplish goals while connecting what you do in the classroom to the real world.
Our professional mentorship program pairs you with an IT professional based on your interest. Throughout the academic year, you and your mentor will meet regularly to discuss your goals, develop skills, and become more familiar with a career in information technology.
It’s exciting to be part of a growing and changing profession. With that come a lot of choices and decisions. You and your mentor will take the time to explore your interests and different career possibilities.
Part of knowing what you want to do is understanding what you’ll be doing on a daily basis. The mentorship program carves out time to break down the specifics of what professionals do day in and day out.
Working with a mentor helps you see firsthand how what you do as a student prepares you for life as a professional.
Knowledge and ability contribute to your success in information technology, but you also need soft skills such as communicating effectively, thinking strategically, and being a good team player, to have a fulfilling career.
