Through the Wasserman Center's Mentor Network, you can connect to NYU students through one-on-one interactions and by participating in the panel and networking events hosted regularly at the Wasserman Center. The program provides students with an inside look at career options through informational interviewing, networking, and observation. Members of the Mentor Network gain the satisfaction of helping students make sound career decisions, and help develop a pipeline of qualified NYU talent.
The Mentor Network involves no promise of future employment. This program is designed to promote professional networking and allow the students insight into the career and industry.
The program is adaptable to the needs of individual participants. The extent of time contributed by mentors is dependent on their availability and chosen level of participation.
