Remember when you were attending NIU and how it would have been nice if you had someone to talk to regarding your career choice. Someone who could tell you what path they took to get the kind of job you hope to land or do a job shadow to see if that job is really as interesting to you once you see what is expected of you. You really could have used a mentor experience.
Being a Mentor can be a truly rewarding experience. It's an opportunity to share your experiences and knowledge with current NIU students.
