Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors (with at least one academic year remaining) and a GPA of at least a 2.5 are eligible.  This is a free program open to all majors.

      “I graduated in May and started full-time in July, as a Tax Associate at Andersen Tax. My Mentor has been a very helpful resource over the years. He’s given me advice on my resumes, cover letters, and applying to jobs. He’s also given me networking tips, been a good person to bounce ideas off of, and overall has given me more confidence when talking to professionals. As an alumni he’s served as a role model for things I wanted to accomplish here at WPU and I’m glad I joined the program.  Everyone should participate to gain valuable networking, resume building, and character development opportunities. The program gives you a chance to look more in-depth into the lives of working professionals that were in your shoes just a few years ago.”
