CAREER MENTOR NETWORK

STUDENTS
Centre alumni are waiting to help you!

Join the Career Mentor Network and connect with people who have “been there” for career advice and guidance!

WHAT IS THE CAREER MENTOR NETWORK?
It’s a network of Centre alumni (and other friends of the college) willing to provide career information and advice to current Centre students.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Gain access – Call the Center for Career & Professional Development (CCPD) at 859-238-5283 to gain access to the Career Mentor Network (housed on CentreWorks)
Find mentors – Search for mentors by major, career field, job title, geographic location, etc.
Connect – Send a message to alumni through the online system. Be sure to include your email and phone # so they have options for getting back to you. It’s that easy!

WHY SHOULD I JOIN?
Get advice and grow your professional network – This is a great opportunity to explore potential career fields, learn more about careers you’re interested in, and make connections with people who have a first-hand understanding of what it’s like to make the transition from Centre student to working professional.

Ready to start connecting? Call the CCPD at 859-238-5283 to get signed up!

ALUMNI and FRIENDS OF THE COLLEGE

Become a Career Mentor and provide current students with the career advice and guidance you wish you’d had!

HOW DOES IT WORK?
• Register — Create a profile with information about your education and employment.
• Get discovered — Your profile will be seen by students searching for your area(s) of expertise.
• Connect — Students will reach out to you through our online system, CentreWorks. You can chat there or move the conversation to email, phone, or in-person.
 
WHY SHOULD ALUMNI/FRIENDS OF THE COLLEGE JOIN?
• Make a difference — For generations, Centre students have relied on the “Centre mafia” for guidance and mentorship. Connecting with alumni in their chosen fields can have a HUGE impact on a student’s career and professional development.
• It’s easy and risk-free — Registering is quick and easy. You decide what contact information to share with students, so your privacy is protected. Furthermore, you can limit your commitment by frequency of contacts or number of students. Your only obligation is to respond to the students who reach out to you.
