On Monday, March 7, Randy Reid, owner of Reid Media Group, will be on campus to participate in the Office of Career Services and Student Activities' Mentor Monday program. The first and third Mondays of each month, a business professional from the community comes to campus to meet with Elmira College students one-on-one. During each 15-minute time slot, students have the opportunity to have their resume and cover letter reviewed, interview skills critiqued, networking connections developed, or simply to have a conversation with a professional who has experience in the position or industry matching the student’s career aspiration.
Students who attended previous Mentor Monday sessions have had great experiences. Kelly Johnson ’16 had the opportunity to sit down with CEO and Executive Director of the YWCA of Elmira, Michele Johnson.
“I thought the idea of being able to speak one on one with a mentor was awesome. It gave me a chance to ask specific questions and she could answer them directly tailored to me. I appreciated being able to learn more about interview skills, which is not my strong point. Overall, I thought it was helpful, especially as a senior about to face many of the subjects we discussed first-hand,” Kelly said.
To sign up for upcoming Mentor Mondays, contact the Office of Career Services by calling (607) 735-1830 or by visiting the office on the first floor of the Gannett-Tripp Library.
