For college students, the connection between coursework and a career can sometimes seem hazy. It’s hard for emerging professionals to imagine how their education will one day be relevant in staff meetings or during sales pitches. The CFANS Mentor Program was created to help ease young adults into the transition between student and professional. The program matches current CFANS students with industry professionals in their chosen career field. Through monthly meetings and a job shadow experience, students catch a glimpse into the professional world. They are given the priceless opportunity to ask questions, network, and observe careers that interest them.
