VIRGINIA ALUMNI MENTORING
Virginia Alumni Mentoring connects motivated and career-focused students with alumni who can provide insights about the process of choosing and starting a career in their specific field. The program provides students and alumni mentors a structured means of initiating a professional relationship to discuss career interests and how to prepare for their career.
