Alumni Mentor Project
Joanna Bjerum in Career Services coordinates alumni mentoring. The project – a work in progress – seeks to recruit a worldwide group of alumni volunteers willing to communicate with Bethel students as those students consider a choice of major and future career path.
Serving as an alumni mentor is an opportunity to give something back to Bethel and, more specifically, to current students through the donation of time and the wisdom of experience. Contact can be by phone, e-mail or in person, depending on the students’ schedule and availability of the mentor. Mentors may be asked to:
- offer advice about opportunities in a field of study
- provide connections related to finding a job
- share insight into graduate school study
- give other professional or career-related tips.
