Come by for our Speed Mentoring event!
Mentors will be available to help RPCVs with resume review and other career advice in short one on one meetings.
This is the third speed mentoring event, participants found this format to be very useful in the past, the structure is similar to having many informational interviews in a short amount of time.
We will have a short presentation about the mentoring program, followed by the speed mentoring event, with a happy hour after.
Expand your network, gain new perspectives for your career, and enjoy the extended happy hour!
