Deciding which major is best for you can be a stressful process. Getting halfway through your junior year and wondering if you should change your major is an even more stressful process. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you had a mentor who had been there, done that, and was willing to share his/her experiences with you? That’s where StudentMentor.org comes in.
StudentMentor is a completely free service that matches students with their ideal mentor. There are mentors who volunteer to help students in all industries, whether you are a biochemistry student or a professional writing student. Both mentors and mentees submit matching profiles and are then presented with a list of possible matches. Once you find a mentor/mentee who meets your needs, the two of you can meet and start developing a mentorship.
Why is having a mentor beneficial for college and graduate students? The average academic adviser to student ratio in the USA is 1:285. There’s no way that one adviser can really mentor and advise each of these students. If you want someone to really take a deeper interest in your life and your career, a mentor might be exactly what you are looking for.
Mentors can help you in a wide variety of areas, including everything from deciding on a major to study skills to balancing your professional and personal lives. A mentor can be a working professional in your career field or an older student. Your mentorship can take place anywhere: in a local cafe, on the telephone, or even on a Skype video-chat. Mentorships through StudentMentor are very flexible and vary based on the two needs of the two people involved, so you are sure to find a mentor who is perfect for you.
