AIAS Professional Mentor Program

The University of Oregon chapter of the AIAS announces its Professional Mentor Program, the goal of which is to provide pair students with emerging and established professionals who are interested in serving as mentors to them. The AIAS needs at least 20 more mentors for the program. 

If you’re interested in being a mentor, submit a paragraph similar to the example below describing the path you’ve taken during your career. Students will read the submitted paragraphs and identify their preferences for mentors who best match their personal career goals. The deadline for submissions is this coming Friday, February 1 (AIAS extended their previously published deadline). Following the pairing of students with their mentors, AIAS will host a mixer to allow everyone to meet for the first time. 

Here’s the sample paragraph:
