Where do you go to find a mentor? Here are a few resources to help you find the mentorship you are looking for:
Career Alumni Network
A good place to locate mentors is the Career Alumni Network, a database containing information on alumni who have volunteered to serve as informal career advisors for students and alumni.
- The database is available to search on a computer in the Office of Career and Professional Development (OCPD). You don't need an appointment to search for alumni contacts and can access the database Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
- The profiles in the database contain both the educational and career background of an alum as well as an alumni ID. If you wish to contact a particular alum, you will need to meet with a career counselor at OCPD. To arrange an appointment with a counselor, please call (415) 476-4986.
- During the appointment, you and the counselor will discuss your specific goals and interest and discuss strategies for contacting and engaging with alumni.
