“Colleagues are a wonderful thing — but mentors, that’s where the real work gets done.” — Junot Diaz
Few things can have as powerful of an impact on your career as a mentor. But how do you find a mentor? And even more importantly, how do you ensure your mentor is the right one for you?
The David Eccles School of Business has paired with a company called CampusTap to solve that problem and help students connect to alumni mentors who can give them guidance and help them get a head start on their career path.
Both students and alumni can create a profile using the CampusTap software, and even connect their LinkedIn profile. The software then helps Eccles School staff pair students with the perfect alumni mentor to help guide them throughout their career.
CampusTap will be the primary method of communication for connecting mentors and mentees this year, so keep an eye on your email inbox for an invitation. Both students and alumni are welcome to sign up!
