    Career Mentor Programs
    School of Business


    Career mentors work with students in the School of Business to prepare them for their future career by:

    • Welcoming newly admitted students to the School of Business.
    • Meeting individually with students twice per semester throughout the student’s time at Hamline.
    • Assisting with internship search strategy.
    • Participating in the Internship with Seminar course.
    • Assisting with job search strategy.
    • Providing input on evaluating and negotiating job offers.

    Undergraduate Mentorship

    The Hamline School of Business Career Mentor Program prepares undergraduate business and economic students for their career objectives. This unique program is designed to guide students through their undergraduate degree by helping them:

    • prioritize goals;
    • explore internships, jobs, or educational opportunities;
    • create a relationship with an experienced advisor.

    The mentorship program is a chance for students to connect with an individual who is a recently retired or semi-retired upper management executive from the Twin Cities business community, and can offer students tools and resources to gain perspective on their chosen careers.

    The Career Mentor Program is an Invite-Only program.

    Graduate Mentorship

    Graduate students in our Master in Public Administration (MPA) and Master in Nonprofit Management (MNM) programs have the opportunity to work with leaders in the public service field.

    One of Hamline's strengths has always been close connection with practitioners, and this program provides the opportunity for our students to learn and connect one-on-one with leaders in the field. Almost doubling the number from last year, we have added four former legislators and Executive Directors of some the Twin Cities' top nonprofits.

    The Public Service Mentor Program will allow students to learn from an industry expert who will offer wisdom, experience, networking, listening, and support.   

    Mentors interested in helping students can email Jim Scheibel at jscheibel01@hamline.edu.

    Students who want to participate can complete the Mentorship Program Application or email hsb@hamline.edu.
