A: The MIT Sloan Mentoring Program connects current MIT Sloan students and alumni, providing them with an easy way to form rewarding, mutually beneficial relationships.
A: Students and prospective mentors begin the process by completing an online user profile that provides basic information about education and career interests. The system suggests matches based on these profiles, and provides students with a targeted list of prospective mentors. Students then can choose which mentor they would like to meet and initiate contact to begin a mentor/mentee relationship.
A: The MIT Sloan Mentoring Program brings a new level of clarity and efficiency to mentoring. The Program’s online platform uses an algorithm to ensure logical, relevant matches. Mentors control their level of participation in the program, which makes serving as a mentor a more manageable and rewarding experience.
A: We ask mentors to commit to a minimum of six months to one year of participation in the program to ensure that mentees fully benefit from the relationship. If a mentor must leave the program, we request that they provide one-month notice.
A: Working with students one-on-one gives mentors new insight and fresh perspective, and keeps them connected to the innovation that drives MIT Sloan. By helping to prepare the next generation of successful graduates, they build and strengthen the MIT Sloan alumni network. Mentoring is a personal, important way to impact a student and give back to the institution.
A: The Program gives students the opportunity to form one-on-one relationships with successful alumni. Mentors provide resources, support, and tips related to job hunting and career choices. They can also make introductions to other professionals and the larger alumni community.
A: No. While it is a great way for students to connect with alumni for valuable career guidance and other support, it is not intended as a job search tool.
