Mentoring and Career Exploration

Two-Credit Course - Full Academic Year

Consisting of a two-credit course that covers the full academic year (one credit for each semester), students in this mentoring program are matched with a dedicated alumni mentor whose professional experience will assist them in advancing their career development.

  • Students will complete a series of self-guided modules and exercises to enhance their communication skills, support personal goal setting, examine interests and engage in self-assessment, practice self-reflection and promote career exploration and planning.
  • Students will meet with their mentor a minimum of three times throughout the academic year.
  • Enrollment for the two-credit course for the 2022-2023 academic year will open in spring of 2022 (Gaels Connect Networking mentoring available to all students throughout the year.)
