Flash Mentor Program

Flash Mentor Program

The Flash Mentor Program is a CSU-Global Alumni Association mentor program that facilitates short-term mentoring relationships between student/alumni mentees and an alumni mentor. These 1-3 time meetings or discussions enable the mentee to learn and seek specific guidance from an experienced CSU-Global alumni. Examples of mentee/mentor meetings in the Flash Mentor Program:

  • Informational interview about the company or industry
  • Resume and/or cover letter review for specific field/industry/company
  • Mock interview 
  • Career advice
  • LinkedIn profile review/tips

When matching with a mentee/mentor be cognizant of why you are choosing them. You have the ability to search the directory for a mentor based on criteria that you set. Make sure that you are requesting and/or accepting mentor/mentee requests that will be beneficial for both the mentee and mentor.
