Mentors work one-on-one with International Students to help them prepare for the job market. Activities include practicing interview skills, clarifying professional objectives and focus, and gaining confidence in presentation and networking. Mentors will help mentees with editing cover letters and business communications, as well as introducing mentees to contacts in their industry. Mentors attend a 45 minute orientation session, then meet with their mentees once a month. Additional contact is via phone and email.
Mock Interviewers take part in a 3-hour workshop held monthly on a Saturday morning or weekday night. After a brief training at the event, the volunteer conducts a practice interview for two International Students.
