SOC’s unique mentoring program bridges the gap between the classroom and the professional world as students prepare for future careers in communication. Each year SOC students who are admitted to the program are paired with top SOC alumni for career advice through a partnership between the School of Communication, AU Career Center, and SOC Development Team. Whether it is helping mentees meet short and long term career goals, sharing tips to improve resumes and portfolios or helping students network their way into the communication field, professional mentors are an invaluable source of knowledge and experience for students.
Below are some video interviews with mentor-mentee pairs about their experience with the program.
