PC Executive Mentor Program
The Providence College Executive Mentor Program helps to develop a strong connection between PC students and successful business and community leaders. During the mentorship, students are provided with opportunities for educational and career development as well as insight into leadership and 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
The level of involvement during the two-year relationship will vary based on a mutual agreement between the mentor and student. The Center for Career Education & Professional Development plans events and offers suggestions on ways to connect and provide 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!)

BECOME A MENTOR
If you would like to join our program, we ask that you complete the Mentor Profile Form. It is important that you answer the questions about yourself, your career, and indicate any preferences you may have in a future mentee – the information you provide will help us promote and match you appropriately.
To participate in the mentor program this fall, please submit your profile form to Stacey Moulton by July 29th. We will be advertising mentor opportunities to students in September and will notify you of your match by the beginning of October. We expect students to contact their mentors by mid-October.
