The Alumni Sharing Knowledge Program (ASK) is offering Graduates Of the Last Decade (GOLD) alumni a chance to be mentored by fellow alumni.
As of 2017, ASK expanded its programming to all GOLD alumni, as well as second semester first-year students.
“Thanks to our alumni mentors, the ASK program has been a valuable resource to our students for more than two decades,” said Stephanie Lamb ’07, associate director of alumni relations. “We look forward to serving our recent graduates by helping them build their networks and by providing the support needed in their post-graduate journeys.”
ASK is a mentoring program that matches students and GOLD alumni with individual alumni to explore career fields in their interests. The program provides current students and alumni who have graduated in the past 10 years a chance to network, receive advice, conduct informational reviews, visit work sites and learn the ins-and-outs of their chosen industry.
GOLD alumni will be paired with alumni based on their career interests and aspirations. Recent alumni interested in being paired with a mentor can apply by filling out an application online at alumni.oswego.edu/ask. Once their application is completed, the alumni will be contacted by the ASK coordinator.
In addition, the ASK program seeks mentors who are willing to help current students and GOLD alumni find their paths in their career fields.
By being able to serve more members of the SUNY Oswego community, the ASK program can help “build strong connections and make a larger impact on the community,” Lamb said.
