The Fordham Mentoring Program allows alumni to share their advice and experience, giving students an invaluable opportunity to grow and putting them on the path to success.
Students gain insight and experience through:
- Resume reviews
- On-site workplace visits
- Mock interviews
- Networking receptions
- Skill development workshops
Applications are now closed to students. Alumni may still apply.
The Fordham Mentoring Team pairs undergraduate students one-on-one with alumni who provide professional expertise and career advice over the course of a year-long program.
At the start of the fall semester, student and alumni participants are carefully matched based on commonalities in their personal and professional profiles.
Throughout the program, mentors and mentees communicate and meet regularly based on the terms of their customized Mentor-Mentee Covenant. In addition to these meetings, pairs attend four on-campus milestone events and regularly assess their progress through online Checkpoint Surveys. Learn more about the program and the matching process.
Mentoring Fordham students is a great way to reconnect with the University and to give back, in a tangible and personalized way. Seeing your mentees grow before your eyes is as exciting as it is rewarding. These are relationships that will last for years.
–Chris Gulotta, FCLC '82, LAW '88, Alumni Mentor 2008-Present
Advice given to you as a student from someone who was in the exact same shoes as you, looking at you completely unbiased, is unparalleled. –Abigail David, GABELLI '16, Student Mentee
