Did you ever wish you could go back in time and give your "younger self" advice?
We can't help you do that.
But, maybe YOU can help one of our current students benefit from your wisdom (and possibly help yourself and your fellow alumni along the way)!
Join our new Alumni Career Network within our Pioneerlink online recruiting system! This is a simple, student/alumni-only online mentoring/networking tool allowing you to share your wisdom and experience with our current students and network with your fellow alumni.
The concept is simple. Click on the link below and fill out your profile. This enters you into a searchable database accessible only by our current students and alumni. Current students can search the database for mentors based on their career interests and are provided with alumni profiles that match.
Likewise, alumni can search as if they were a student to find new networking connections. Once a student/alumnus has found a person they wish to speak with, they can express interest in speaking with them through the system and this will allow that person to begin a mentoring/networking relationship with them if they choose to do so.
Participants can jointly agree how long this relationship will last, and its scope. A one-time chat by email, or coffee in person once a week, it's all up to you. We hope this will become a wonderful career research tool and networking opportunity for our current students and alumni alike. A few things to note:
This service is entirely free for both mentors and students
This service is only open to current students and alumni
All initial activity/contact exists within the system until you choose to extend the conversations outside the system (simply filling out your profile, and even agreeing to mentor someone, does not automatically share your personal information with anyone, mentors have complete control over initiating relationships after a student expresses interest.)
You can set the limit of how many students you wish to mentor (max. of 2). Once you hit your maximum you are removed from the database until you go back below that maximum, so you won't be inundated with new requests while already working with a student.
You can end a relationship at any time. At that point you can make yourself available to another student, or you can remove yourself from the program entirely.
Registration is easy! Simply click on the link below and fill out the registration form.
