Mentor/Shadow Program

 Mentoring is a trusting supportive relationship between a student and professional who offers guidance, support and encouragement aimed at the student’s professional development as they transition into the workforce.  Mentoring is an informal relationship and is not binding. Students and mentors are asked to meet one time to establish the needs and goals of the mentoring relationship.The mentoring then can take place electronically or in person depending on the desires and time constraints of the members.  

Students that are a member of Women's Center Student Groups have the opportunity to have a mentor or shadow a professional.

*Only open to members of Women's Center student groups.

Job Shadow/Informational Interview Application
A job shadow is conducted by students who are very seriously considering an occupation and want to see what a day on the job is like. Job shadows last a half a day or more—and often include meetings with key staff in the company. The main goal of the job shadow is to watch a professional at work and to follow them as they do their daily activities. An informational interview gives students the opportunity to obtain an inside view of a job field that interests them by speaking with people who are currently working in that field.
