As IE alumni, you are an integral part of our family and your role as a mentor is a great way to give back and pay it forward to the IE community. There are many ways you can share your experiences, expertise, and insights with students and fellow alumni who wish to have support and guidance on their professional growth. Our mentors are true community leaders. Let your passion inspire others and make a long-lasting impact to your alma mater!
ONLINE MENTORING PLATFORM
Our Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Platform is a powerful online platform that facilitates one-to-one career consultations among IE alumni and students. As IE alumni, you can advise on specific issues based on your own areas of expertise or your own career transitions. You can also review CVs, offer interview tips and practice sessions. Registration is quick and your professional information can be easily synchronized with your LinkedIn profile, and you decide what to make public and you set up your availability (i.e. Fridays from 10am to 11am). Once an advisee selects your profile, the platform takes it from there – from scheduling the phone meeting to collecting feedback following the consultation.
