Virginia Alumni Mentoring

Sign up to connect with alumni in a variety of jobs and industries across the country and around the world. Expand your network and prepare for the transition from college to career. Any questions? Contact mentoring@virginia.edu.

Virginia Alumni Mentoring is a program that connects motivated and career-focused students with alumni who have volunteered to provide insights about the process of choosing and starting a career in their specific field.  This is done through semester-long (Aug-Dec) mentoring and short-term "flash" mentoring. 

The program provides students and their alumni mentors a structured means of initiating a professional relationship to discuss career interests and topics of professional preparation: together, they develop goals for their regular meetings, during which the alumni mentors offer insights about their own undergraduate experiences, career progression and current work which supports mentees in navigating their own chosen career paths.
