Get career advice from an engineer or scientist!
Here’s an opportunity for ALL Dartmouth students studying science, mathematics or engineering. Get “real world” information, encouragement, advice, and access to professional networks from professionals in your field.
MentorNet’s One-on-One Mentoring Programs pair male and female undergraduate, and graduate students, postdocs and early career faculty as proteges with female or male science professionals from industry, government labs and academia as mentors for one-on-one, e-mail-based mentoring (e-mentoring) relationships.
The program has proven effective by providing “real world” information, encouragement, advice, and access to networks that are otherwise often unavailable to underrepresented groups. This is why more than 90% of participants would recommend MentorNet’s e-mentoring programs to a friend or colleague.
Women and Minorities Not Getting Mentoring, MentorNet Study Finds — In 2006-07, MentorNet surveyed approximately 2,500 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars about their perceptions of the value and need for mentors. 98% of respondents reported that having a mentor (of some type) was important to them.
