VOLUNTEER MENTOR INFORMATION

(Hiring Engineers, HR Recruiters/Professionals)

This year, the Engineering Career Center has revamped the format for the Engineering Career Prep Day workshop. Our unique event will take a different spin on the ever-important topic of preparing our students for the job hunt.

We are searching for experienced hiring engineers and HR recruiters/managers to act as volunteer “mentor-advisors” for the morning to meet with undergraduate engineering students in organized “speed networking/discussion” groups. The topics will range from interview preparation, to salary negotiation, to professional etiquette and more.

Our “mentor-advisors” will be given an assigned discussion topic and links to read in preparation for this workshop. This will be a fun event of timed discussions (students move to a different table after approximately 8-10 minutes for another discussion topic). The “mentor-advisors” will be helping to facilitate the discussions and will provide valuable input.

Please contact us if you are interested in being a volunteer! Email us at engrjobs@uic.edu . Your inquiry will be answered by either Kathy Corcos or Rose Coppola-Conroy, both Assistant Directors in the Career Center. They will be delighted to discuss the event with you and see if this would be a good match. There will be other volunteer opportunities in the future, as well.

When: Friday, February 26, 2016
Time: Morning Workshop (details to follow) –
