Virtual Mentoring Week
Virtual Mentoring Week is an opportunity for Baruch students (undergraduate and graduate students from all three Baruch schools: Zicklin School of Business, Weissman School of Arts & Sciences and Marxe School of Public and International Affairs) to benefit from speaking with an executive in their field of interest such as non-profit, government, communications, marketing, finance, accounting, CIS, etc.
Mentors will meet with students in a virtual setting for up to a 1 hour individual mentoring session(s) targeting career-related topics including, but not limited to:
- Industry trends
- transitioning from a student to professional
The Virtual Mentoring Week will:
- Allow students to have one-on-one open interaction with senior executives in a virtual setting
- Provide a vehicle for transferring technical as well as formal and informal industry related and career focused knowledge
- Help students improve their communication skills through career focused dialogue
Mentor for a Morning/Evening
**Due to COVID, our in-person speed networking events are currently postponed. We encourage you to participate in our Virtual Mentoring Week**
Mentor for a Morning is held in the spring; Mentor for an Evening is held once a semester.
The speed mentoring sessions gives students a chance to speak individually with a seasoned executive in their field of interest targeting career-related topics including, but not limited to: networking skills, industry trends, career changes, transitioning from a student to a professional, and emerging fields. As with the Year-Long Mentoring Programs, many of these mentorships turn into lifetime relationships. Mentor for a Morning and Mentor for an Evening serve Baruch students from all three schools.
The program begins with open networking, followed by three 45-minute individual mentoring sessions. Mentors in this program are management and C-level executives who have at least 3 years of experience in their industry.
