Being successful after graduation requires more than what you can learn in the classroom. It requires real on-the-ground experiences. The Accounting Mentor Program provides the ability to interact with accounting professionals in a variety of industries so that students can get a feel for what their careers may look like. 

The mentors offer invaluable career guidance, suggestions for the recruiting and interviewing process, professional insight to business issues, and professional development opportunities. Seattle University is fortunate to have alumni so willing to assist those currently pursuing their degree. Without them this program would not be possible.
