Mentorship Opportunities 

Informal mentorships frequently happen organically. A mentor may connect one time to review a student’s resume or share their job experience. These relationships may evolve into deeper longer lasting professional connections, or the interaction could simply be a one-time occurrence. Informational interviews, resume reviews, or simple Q&A sessions are all examples of informal mentorship.

Formal mentorships are more structured programs where alumni and students are paired together with intention. They require regular check-ins and work together through shared goals. If you are interested in a formal mentoring opportunity, here are a few of our current programs available on USC’s Trojan Network.
