Students should apply for the mentoring program if they truly are interested in learning about how they fit into their aspiring careers. The reality is, a career may seem one way in a textbook, but it could be totally different for you in real life. Be proactive, don’t wait until you’re awarded a degree in a discipline you’ve never performed in before.
