How did you learn about this opportunity?

I learned about this opportunity from the Liberal Arts Career Enrichment Network website.

Tell us a little bit about your experience.

I had a very successful alumni mentor experience. Although my mentor, Juliana, and I have never met, we e-mail regularly and talk on the phone once every few months. Juliana has advised me through countless experiences including studying abroad in China, attending fall career days, interviewing for a new job, and even what to wear for my first week of work.

How did this experience impact you academically?

Juliana helped me find and obtain a job for post graduation. She listened to my interests and all of the jobs I wasn't interested in and always sent me job openings if she came across them. For the longest time I didn't know what I wanted to do with my major and Juliana helped me explore all of the possibilities.

What are your career goals and plans?  How did this experience impact them?

I plan to work as a Project Coordinator at a translating company in New York called Transperfect. My mentor actually worked in the same position for the same company for a period of time so she was very helpful in telling me what to expect and whether or not it was something that would match my interests.

The alumni mentors have valuable experience that can help all of us.

Would you recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts students?

Yes, I would recommend this experience to Liberal Arts students. Alumni have all experienced exactly what you are going through, whether you are a junior looking for an internship or a senior looking for a job. The alumni mentors have valuable experience that can help all of us.
