VOLUNTEER - BECOME A MC CAREERGUIDE ONLINE MENTOR
Help us to give our MC students the mentorship and career guidance they need to succeed. We are looking for exceptional leaders in all career industry areas to volunteer to be CareerGuides for the Metropolitan College CareerGuide Online Mentorship Program.
This unique and online mentorship program is meant to be a one-time exchange between the students and CareerGuides so there is no lengthy time commitment involved.
Students are connected with professionals who will serve as their "CareerGuides" and provide valuable “one-time” feedback through an email-based platform utilizing a guided mentorship engagement form on career documents, such as the resume, online career portfolio, and LinkedIn profile.
Learn more and sign up to be a MC CareerGuide Online Mentor! Refer a colleague or a friend.
