Mentor an Albion Student
Do you want to help an Albion student?
As Albion College alumni, you know the quality of the educational experience at Albion and its students. You also know that the people working in careers have an expertise that can go beyond what is available at the College. If you are interested in assisting current Albion students, we are interested in adding you to our network of mentors.
The Albion College mentoring program uses the strengths of the LinkedIn network, Albion alumni, and supporters. The Albion Mentoring LinkedIn Group is a subgroup of the Albion College official LinkedIn group. You will need to be granted permission to be a part of the Mentoring group and will be expected to adhere to strong ethical standards to participate.
Topics that may be covered within a mentoring relationship may be as simple as questions about how to communicate a skill in a resume. Students and mentors may form longer term mentoring relationships that cover choice of career, success in college, and success after college.
Getting Matched with a Mentee
The matching process will materialize in one of a few ways: the public arena of the Linkedin group or through a student reaching out to a specific mentor that is a member of the group. Public postings allow the Career Development, Alumni, and Parent Leadership offices to monitor and facilitate matches.
Mentoring Program Handout for Mentors
If you have any additional questions, please contact the Office of Career Development.
We hope you consider giving back to Albion College students. The role of mentoring is very important to the success of our graduates!
First Destination Report
Albion College is interested in what happens to our students once they graduate. Each year the Office of Career Development surveys graduates to gather information on what they are doing in the areas of employment, graduate / professional school, and volunteer service. This information is used by the Office of Career Development and other departments at Albion College to continue to change and improve the services we provide our students and alumni.
