Career Mentors

Eckerd College is now in its fifth year of the Career Mentor program. This program pairs current students and recent graduates with alumni who provide guidance in the transition from college to life after Eckerd.

Meet the 2022-2023 Career Mentors. The 2022-2023 Career Mentor program has 45 mentors and 52 mentorships.

About the Program

Each month, students and alumni mentors will correspond via email and connect by phone, video call, or in-person. Together, Student Mentees and their Career Mentors will identify action items to accomplish each month.

Career Mentors support students by:

  • Providing positive feedback

  • Gaining new career-related experiences, such as internships

  • Finding resources

  • Polishing career strategies

  • Connecting with other professional colleagues

  • Discussing LinkedIn profiles and online presence

Twice a semester, Career Mentors will be able to join a Zoom hour to share any questions or concerns.
