Build Your Own Experience (BYOE)

  • Students can design a mentorship experience that aligns with their career goals by connecting with industry professionals in a casual format
  • Experiences may include an informational interview, job shadow, virtual coffee chat, etc.
  • Students identify their career development goals and log mentorship hours which are validated by the mentor and submitted to the ESES office for Co-Curricular Record approval
  • Mentees must engage in a minimum of 10 hours of meaningful relationship building with industry professionals in their field of study
  • A student may have as many mentors as they deem necessary to complete their hours and achieve their career development goals
  • Industry professionals may choose to register their availability with the program and agree to be contacted by students for short mentorship experiences
  • Students are encouraged to seek out their own industry contacts when building their own mentorship experience
