Engaging with Students—Mentoring Opportunities

Opportunities to Connect with Students

We invite Rutgers alumni, industry experts, parents of Honors College students, and friends of the Honors College to join our community of distinguished mentors. 

  • Invite a group of students to your place of work for a company site visit. The groups can be as small or large as you prefer; we offer a variety of options for students throughout the academic year to give exposure to a range of industries.
  • Host a student to shadow you at your place of business for a morning, afternoon, or full day.
  • Promote internships or job prospects to recruit Honors College students by sharing posting information for us to disseminate to students in our weekly newsletters. 
  • Serve as a distinguished speaker on key topics and interests of our students taking students on a deep dive into a topical area that you can passionately speak to and that is relevant in business today.
  • In partnership with recruiters, serve as an industry expert speaking with students during Office Hours where students meet with recruiters and industry experts for 15-30-minute 1:1 sessions to learn about an organization, hear more about an industry and company culture, and assess fit with an organization.
  • Become a Graduate Mentor Fellow to both mentor a first-year student over the course of the Fall semester and assist seniors as they prepare for graduate school and/or presenting their research capstone projects.
  • Host an information session at the Honors College to speak about your organization. We welcome, in particular, sessions that engage our students through Q&A with Rutgers alums or an activity that gives students a taste of your work and the opportunity to interact with industry experts.
