The Mock Career Fair was our first Mentorship Program collaboration event with SHPE, IEEE and GSA. The room was setup in a open panel type layout around the edges of the room, the mentors were sitting on the outside, allowing the mentees to freely travel around and get advice and help from everyone. The Mock Career Fair was a comfortable, but constructive environment for mentees and other mentors to practice talking to “recruiters” (mentors assuming the role of a company or graduate school). It opens newcomers up to getting help on their elevator pitches, resumes and interview skills. The mentees that did attend the event found the critiques very helpful and the range of opinions and help they received gave them a lot to work with and improve upon. It made me very happy to watch all our organizations come together to support our freshman and younger classmen. Overall, I believe the event was successful in the quality of constructive help it offered to the students and the feedback from the mentees.
