Alumni mentorship program for final year B.Tech/BS students to enable the creation of meaningful long-term connections with the Alumni helping the students with their guidance to navigate through times of uncertainty and confusion during the placement season, ultimately allowing them to make an informed career choice. The program will be run by the Students’ Gymkhana with the support from AA board members Ms. Apoorva Khandelwal and Ms. Smita Hashim. It seeks to enhance the career awareness of the mentees so that they are better equipped to find off-campus applications, go for MBA/MS/Ph.D., and/or jobs that match their goals and interests.
The proposed piloting with a single cohort focusing on Corporate career mentorship with domain specific subgroups.
This cohort (Corporate career mentorship) would involve a mentor being mapped to 3-4 mentees according to the domain of interest. If possible later we will be combining 3 mentors from a similar background into one big group with 10 students as their mentees.
While, later cohorts would be focused on Higher Education and Academia where people with similar interests and aspirations can come together and ask for help as required from the mentors in the respective fields.
