Help a Student – Share Your Professional Experience

It’s an ever- changing world out there, but one thing is constant… Michigan Tech alumni and students share a common rigorous academic experience and are well prepared to meet workplace challenges.

Students benefit greatly from the many alumni who financially support scholarships, facilities, research and many other campus activities, but the value they receive from those who share their time and experiences is incalculable.

With the launch of Michigan Tech Alumni Association’s new mentoring program, alumni can share their professional experience as well as network with students and recent graduates.  It’s a great opportunity to show your passion for your industry and profession and spark student interest in that career field.

The program enables alumni to post useful career information in the Mentoring Directory within HuskyLink, our online alumni community, which can be searched by current students interested in finding a mentor.

The duration of this professional networking relationship is left to the discretion of the participants. It is not designed to interview candidates or inquire about a position; although, if an employment opportunity arises there is no restriction on hiring a mentee.

If you wish to become a mentor, please visit http://mtu.edu/alumni/connect/mentoring and follow the easy steps to complete your Mentor Profile.

Many thanks to Ken Guenther who attended Tech on an US Army program in 1945, for his generous financial support that has helped make this program possible.
