Instructions for Developing an Mentee/Mentor Relationship

What is a ASK Career Mentor and why should I have one?

 In the Prescott College ASK Career Mentor Program, a mentor is someone to assist you as you make career-related decisions. You may consider having a mentor for the following reasons: 

  • Receive relevant, firsthand information about a particular career field. 
  • Explore unknown career paths. 
  • Determine how a specific career may match your interests, lifestyle and future plans.
  • Begin to develop a network of contacts in a particular career field. 

The primary purpose of this program is to build relationships between Prescott College Alumni and students through the sharing of career insights and accomplishments.  The Prescott College ASK Career Network is not to be used for business solicitation purposes nor is it to be used as a network for job placement. Any user who misuses ASK will be banned from participating in the program.
