About the CMU Alumni Mentor Program

The benefits to mentorship are endless, if you know how to make the most of it. Your mentor is here to help you develop professional skills, gain insight on industry and career paths to help you make informed career decisions. 

The Alumni Mentor Program enables alumni to share their professional experience and expertise with CMU students and recent grads. Alumni mentors work with you to customize what the mentorship will look like and how often you will communicate. This will help each mentorship build a relationship that works best for both people. 

Whether you are looking for a day of job shadowing or an ongoing professional relationship AMP will work for you.
