Graduates, you have the power to inspire and motivate
Your knowledge, expertise and insights can help mentees get the most from their University of Phoenix experience. You can open students' eyes to the opportunities and challenges they may face after graduation—and you can inspire them to aim high. Mentoring is a wonderful way to make a real and lasting impact on a student's life.
As an alumni mentor, you are only expected to be an expert in one thing: your own career path and life story. You are not expected to offer career best practices or to do resume reviews, the University provides certified Career Coaches to help with those topics. As an alumni mentor, you are encouraged to share the following information with mentees:
- My Mentor Story- Learn how I got to where I am today.
- My Company Culture- Every company has a unique internal culture. Learn more about mine.
- My Industry Resources- Learn my recommendations of books, websites and podcasts that can help ensure you're in-the-know for our industry.
- My Interview Questions- You've landed an interview, but what questions will our industry ask you in the hot seat?
As a graduate, you understand that innovation and cutting-edge thinking define the University of Phoenix experience. When you serve as a mentor, you’ll have regular, direct contact with a student who is immersed in that innovation every day. While students benefit from your experience and insights, they can also expose you to the new ideas that are shaping today's University of Phoenix.
