The Fordham Mentoring Program offers alumni the opportunity to share their experience and put current students on the path to success.
Students gain valuable insights through:
- Resume reviews
- On-site workplace visits
- Mock interviews
- Networking receptions
- Skill development workshops
Student applications are now closed. Alumni may still apply to be mentors.
The Fordham Mentoring Team pairs students one-on-one with alumni who provide professional expertise and career advice.
At the beginning of the fall semester, student and alumni participants are thoughtfully matched based off commonalities in their personal and professional profiles.
Throughout the yearlong program, mentors and mentees communicate and meet regularly based off the agreed-upon terms that best suit them. In addition to these individual interactions, pairs are required to attend four milestone events over the course of the year and check in regularly to assess their progress through Checkpoint Surveys. Read 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.

Having a mentor in your life is a great opportunity for a mentee to learn about different career paths, seek advice on making career choices, and most importantly, have open conversations in an informal setting.
