Apply to volunter: Host Alumni Mentor Office Hours
Now recruiting for Spring Semester Mentoring
(This application may take you 10-15 mins, Thank you for your time!)
Help The New School by giving advice to the next generation of creators and innovators! Alumni are invited to volunteer this November and December as part of the Alumni Engagement Meet a Mentor series, a flash (short-term) mentoring program for students, recent graduates and alumni seeking to change career paths. Now more than ever, it's so important for students and graduates to hear from experienced alumni, like you, who can speak to realworld experience and provide career advice during these uncertain and evolving times. During Meet a Mentor sessions, alumni and mentees can discuss career advice, job hunting, networking, interviewing, resume or portfolio review, and networking with fellow alumni and New School colleagues.
To be a mentor, alumni must
have graduated no sooner than 2018
be willing to have a positive and thoughtful conversation with both student and alumni mentees
provide an email they are willing to share with the mentee
Applicants will be contacted by the Alumni Engagement office with further instructions and may include a phone or video chat regarding your interest.
These are short-term, 45 minute 1:1 video chats. Below, you will provide general availability. We hope you'll consider participating in 2 - 3 two hour-blocks.
Be prepared to provide your bio at the end of this form. Prospective mentees will read your bio before deciding to sign up for your sessions. Think of this as your "advertisement" to attracting mentees to choose your session. (If you have participated in school year 19-20, we already have a bio for you. Or, feel free to provide an updated bio)
Also be prepared to type out one piece of advice you have for students or recent graduates. (100 words or less)
Thank you for your consideration!
