When alumni become mentors
April 30, 2014—
The LAU Alumni Relations Office has officially launched its Alumni Mentoring Program, addressed to students in their final year of study. The program aims to support the graduating students through the transitional period as they step out of the university into the professional world.
This project, developed in collaboration with the Career Guidance Office, brings together experienced and successful alumni and student groups within the same field.
“The goal is for our students to take advantage of our alumni’s experience and learn more about the practical and professional aspects of the field they have chosen to work in, to figure out the right choices, to understand how to act in job interviews, prepare their CVs and more importantly to build up capacities that best serve their professional career,” says Abdallah al Khal, executive director of alumni relations.
This program will open up new horizons for LAU students who will have internship and employment prospects in leading institutions both in the country and abroad, as well as great networking opportunities to build on.
“As a soon-to-be graduate, this program is a huge relief for me. I’ll be able to tap into the wisdom and experience of those in my field, and that is invaluable,” says Maria Abou Atmi, a political science student.
