The Mentor Program provided me with the opportunity to interview at my mentor's organization, where I was fortunate enough to be chosen to spend a great summer there as an intern.

Students should participate in the Mentor Program because it is an opportunity to network with professionals, receive third party perspective on your career and along the way gain valuable relationship with a professional who knows the ins and outs of the "real world".

Xavier's Mentor Program has given me unforeseen opportunities and insight into what Cincinnati's network has to offer. The valuable lessons learned from your mentor and the program will benefit you not just in your school and career path, but in life as well.
