In the alum 1-2-1 program, alumni offer half hour, one-on-one appointments to meet with individual students. The appointments typically happen in person at the Career Options Resource Center; we are also experimenting with doing remote appointments via Skype. Conversations with students are meant to be fun, informal, and different each time. The idea is to connect over common interests and share anything that might provide insight, information or encouragement. You’re not expected to have all the answers, just a willingness to share from your own experience and perspective.
When you participate in an Alum 1-2-1 program, we work with you to find a date and some possible appointment times that fit your schedule and ours. You can offer as few as four and as many as ten half-hour student appointments in one day. Most alumni offer 4-6 appointments in a visit. Before the day of the program, CORC will reach out to students with your bio and other information that will help them understand who you are and what you’re about. On the day of the program, CORC staff will welcome you and settle you in to a meeting space. Staff will help students find you, and will communicate about any schedule changes. We will work with you to schedule breaks and time for lunch. If you’re on campus, it’s a great opportunity to check out the new Kern Kafé!
