Serving as a UGA Mentor is one of the most rewarding opportunities to support University of Georgia students. As you begin your journey in the UGA Mentor Program, check out these tips to crafting a mentor profile that will connect with students looking for guidance and career advice:
- Upload an image of yourself to your profile. Students are more likely to request a mentor when there’s a photo.
- Include some of your demographic information. Students often request mentors based on their own identities and interests.
- Opt in to participate in informational interviews. Some students prefer to dip their toes into networking before committing to a 16-week mentor relationship. Opting in to participate in informational interviews allows students to meet with you for 30 minutes to ask their work-, life- and career-related questions. It can also help them determine if you two make a good mentoring match. Learn more about how informational interviews increase the chances of a student connecting with you.
