How do I become a mentee?
- All students enrolled in a degree program in the School of Business (major or minor) are eligible to apply.
- Upon being matched, you will be paired with your mentor for the remainder of your career at Emporia State. If for some reason you cannot continue to be a mentee, or wish to terminate your mentor/mentee relationship, you will need to contact Lauren Woolard in the School of Business Resource Center (620-341-5232 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
What are the expectations of mentees?
- Mentees should plan on devoting approximately one hour per month to their mentor. The expectation is that mentors and mentees will participate in at least one form of communication each month. Communication of any kind is acceptable: e-mail, phone, Skype, face-to-face, etc. At the beginning of each month a suggested conversation topic will be posted to the Mentor Program webpage, and also sent in an e-newsletter.
- Mentees should be prepared to engage in a professional relationship, one in which you will be responsible for maintaining regular communication, willing to listen and learn, and taking initiative.
What are the benefits of having a School of Business mentor?
- Here are a few ways in which a mentor will be able to help you:
- Resume critique
- Discuss industry trends
- Introduce you to colleagues to help build your professional network
- Identify internship and job opportunities
- Provide interview tips
- Give advice on professional communication, dress and demeanor
I hereby consent, voluntarily, to the release and disclosure of my resume and mentee application information, which was written and drafted by me and provided to ESU School of Business, to any and all potential mentors for the purpose of ESU School of Business faciltating my participation in the Mentor Program.
