We believe one of the greatest ways an alum can give back to their alma mater is to engage with and support current students. Students find so much value in connecting with alums to hear about their career journeys and gain their advice. The following list are specific opportunities to engage with current students at events throughout the year. If you are also open to being contacted by students for informational interviews, please notify the Albers Placement Center at (206) 296-5687 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Your support of students is strongly appreciated.
The Albers Mentor Program, coordinated by the Albers Placement Center, provides a unique opportunity for graduate-level and senior undergraduate business students to interact with upper level executives from leading Puget Sound companies and organizations. It offers students opportunities to develop business contacts, access industry information, and gain valuable insights from experienced and successful professionals. The program is highly acclaimed by the business community and Albers students. Becoming a mentor is a great way to give back and make a difference in the professional development of Seattle University business students. Mentors are required to have at least 7-10 years work experience. For more information, visit the Mentor Program page.
