• HSB Career Mentor Program

    Want to graduate with a BETTER JOB?

    Develop the skills to build your competitive advantage in winning the job you want and launching the career of your dreams!

    Getting the career of your dreams takes more than a great education! At Hamline’s School of Business, undergraduates have the opportunity to gain the guidance and develop the skill sets to:

    • Figure out what is the career of your dreams
    • Develop the career management skills that will serve you throughout your career
    • Compete effectively in our highly competitive job market

    Does it take much time?

    You will be assigned your own personal CMP Mentor. We understand that some semesters will be busier than others. So, we set our minimums to include attending Orientation and two sessions with your mentor both Fall and Spring semesters. This translates into about 10 hours per academic year.

    How do I get the most out of the program?

    The earlier you start, the more skills you can develop for building your future career, even if you don’t know what that looks like yet. So, we encourage you to start early in your academic life, don’t wait until you are a senior.

    The more you put in, the more you will get out of it. Beyond the minimums, you can:

    • Meet more frequently with your CMP Mentor. Generally, every 3-4 weeks for a 1-2 hours works well.
    • Take advantage of advice and help from other CMP Mentors and CMP Students.
    • Join 1-2 hour workshop events on topics, like building your Linked In profile, learning your strengths from the StrengthsFinder survey, leveraging internships or managing personal finances.
    • Work with our seasoned CMP Mentors as a Student Event Leader.
    • Build a community of influence to find out about different careers in your areas of interest, start developing your brand and get better internship and job opportunities.
    • Receive personalized help with your resume and interviewing skills to make a better impression and showcase your capabilities.
    • Have fun, earn rewards for participation and celebrate with us at year-end.
