BU Mentor Program in LinkedInMany college students begin their post-graduation education experience with limited "real world" knowledge about the career fields they ultimately would like to pursue. Recognizing this, the Smith Career Center has developed a network of BU alumni, parents, and friends willing to assist students by sharing information about their professions. The BU Mentor LinkedIn group provides a means of connecting students with these volunteers.
BU Mentor volunteers can assist students by providing one or more of the following:
- Career information/Industry information (How to use a specific degree)
- Informational interviews
- Job shadowing
- Practice/mock interviews
- Employer information
- Employment leads (internship or full-time)
- Relocation information
