Who is an SJCmentee?
A passionate and dedicated SJC student or alumnus who is exploring careers, is in career transition or has questions about graduate school.
Interested students and alumni must fill out a short inquiry form online. Submissions are accepted throughout the year. Within one week of receiving the inquiry, the Offices of Alumni Engagement and Career Development will set up a required mentee orientation meeting to provide a program overview and guidelines, and discuss the resources and services available to SJCmentees. Counseling and career services will be offered throughout the program to assist mentees in their professional development and career growth.
Based on information acquired through personal interviews with potential mentors and mentees and matching criteria that includes professional interests, hobbies/values, and location, mentees are paired with appropriate mentors. A match notification is sent by SJCmentor staff along with program information, guidelines, and resources.
Mentees can only have one mentor at a time. A transitional mentor may be assigned in lieu of or until a formal match is made in order to initiate the mentoring process and make sure the mentee receives ongoing guidance and support.
While the mentoring relationship is formally tracked by the College for one calendar year, we encourage mentoring pairs to continue thriving together and carry their collaborative relationship beyond the program’s guidelines.
