Mentoring

Baruch College offers the following mentoring opportunities for our alumni to give back to their alma mater and help the next generation of Baruch students succeed.

Professional Volunteer Mentor Program

As a Baruch Alumnus, this is a wonderful opportunity to stay connected to your alma mater. Our undergraduate students welcome the opportunity to get feedback and advice from Baruch’s alumni. As a professional volunteer mentor you will meet with Baruch students to help edit their cover letters and resumes, discuss interview tips and networking strategies, provide advice on their job search as well as insights into the world of work. We encourage you to get involved!

If you have 3 years+ of professional experience and a passion for mentoring, please consider becoming a professional volunteer mentor. Please email Marion.Viray@baruch.cuny.edu with your resume and application.

Requirements: 3+ Years of Professional Experience after graduation, be able to commit to meeting with students on Thursdays from 5:30pm to 7:00pm on either a weekly or monthly basis at Baruch College.

Please complete a Professional Volunteer Mentor Program Form. Please allow 2-3 business days for a response.

Academic Year-Long Mentoring Programs

These programs are run through the office of Executives on Campus. These Programs serve undergraduate and graduate students from all three Baruch Schools: the Zicklin School of Business, the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Public affairs. The Academic Year-Long Programs help Mentees (students) define and achieve their career goals by providing Mentors (alumni and other professionals) to support, counsel and serve as role models for the Mentees. Mentors may serve as friend and advocate to their Mentees in addition to assisting and advising in their career development process. The Academic Year-Long Programs run from September through May of the academic year.

Alumni Walk-Ins

SCDC provides free Walk-Ins every Tuesday from 12:00 Noon to 1:00pm. This is on a first come/first served basis and typically last between 10-15 minutes. Walk-Ins is a great opportunity to find out about the career resources and services available to Baruch Alumni as well ask brief questions on your resume, interviews and career strategy. Alumni may utilize a maximum of 3 walk-in sessions.
