PC Executive Mentor Program
The Providence College Executive Mentor Program promotes the development of a strong connection between PC students and successful business and community leaders, providing students with structured opportunities for career development and insight into executive leadership and the professional competencies necessary for success. The PC Executive Mentor program has the potential to impact how our students evaluate career opportunities and may help to link students with professional opportunities upon graduation.
A MENTOR'S COMMITTMENT
While the PC Executive Mentor Program is a two-year relationship, the level of involvement will vary based on a mutual agreement between the mentor and student. The Career Education Center offers events and suggestions to provide ways to connect and guidance. Being a mentor doesn’t always have to be direct contact, many mentors have connected their student with colleagues – it allows a mentor to be able to help when they have busy schedules, and it gives students another avenue of support!
Provide advice and guidance to your student
Allow your student the chance to shadow you
Invite your student to attend a business meeting
Deliver a presentation to their student's class or club
Partner with other Mentors to take their students to an event and dinner
Ask a colleague to meet with your student when you are traveling for business
Connect your student to other professionals for networking opportunities
Run a 5k race together (sometimes a "meeting" can just be fun!)
