A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to participate in a great event with the SMART mentors and mentees. Facilitated by our colleague Pam Brumbaugh, the event was designed to help the students learn how to network with professionals as well as interviewing tips and tricks. The students had the opportunity to network and interact with their mentors, student affairs professionals and alums and recruiters from UPS. The mentees were able to practice networking and the delicate skill of balancing their plates of food and glasses in one hand.
They were also able to participate in mock interviews with their mentors and recruiters as well. A great collaboration between the SMART mentors and our office!
