Alumni Mentoring Network
The SU Mentoring Network is in the process of transitioning to a new
system. This new alumni mentoring network will be available in September
2013. In the meantime, contact the University Relations office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-477-1218 to receive alumni contacts and assistance.
The SU Mentoring Network is available to students, faculty, staff and alumni who would like to make connections with alumni in a chosen career field. This is a great way to find out about the realistic job market before deciding to pursue a career; locate potential speakers or internship opportunities; identify alumni volunteers for special projects; or prepare for a career transition.
How can YOU benefit?
Students - The Mentor Network can be used as a tool for you to learn more about your potential field. The Network is also a great opportunity for students who are near graduation or those seeking internships to make SHIP connections.
Faculty / Staff - Utilize the Mentoring Network to locate alumni with specific experiences that parallel your course or club objectives; support your department or college advisory board goals; or make connections for internship or student employment opportunities.
Alumni - find other alumni that may assist in your own career transitions or upward mobility.
