The 2018 College Mentorship Program Calls for Mentors!

What is the College Mentorship Program? It’s an amazing program through the NHRA that connects college students pursing a degree in Human Resource (HR) with HR professionals in the community. How cool is that?!

What is the purpose? Provide students with a real life HR experience out of the classroom, as well as a networking experience! Each student is matched with a mentor based on HR areas of interest. As many of us know being a mentor also helps us see our own gifts, learn new things, and possibly get some extra work done!

What is the expectation: Mentors are asked to spend at minimum 1-2 hours a month between the end of January – the beginning of May with the mentee assigned to them. Actives may include but are not limited to; job shadowing, reviewing resumes, mock interviewing, attending a job fair, attending an NHRA/educational meeting, or other special projects/tasks.

Are you interested in making a difference?

Please email Tara Swenson (College Relations Director) or call her at (218) 249-8822

Deadline to sign up is Jan 19 

 College Mentorship Program 

The College Mentorship Program is a program hosted by the NHRA that connects college students pursuing a degree in Human Resources (HR) with HR professionals in the area.

The purpose of the program is to provide students with HR experience outside of the classroom, as well as networking experience, through a guided mentorship. Each student is matched with a mentor based on HR areas of interest.  

Expectations in the program include about 1-2 hours a month during a college semester participating in activities like job shadowing, reviewing a résumé, mock interviewing, attending a job fair, attending an NHRA or other educational meeting and other special projects or tasks - the activity list is limitless!

We also host a kick-off event to give the program a jump start, have a good time and network. This program is in it's 4th successful year and we're excited to continue offering such a valuable program to the students in our community.

If you're interested in participating in this program as a mentor or a student or if you're interested in participating in other programs with students please email us at the address at the bottom of the page. We are also very interested in any ideas or suggestions you have!

"Since I go to an online program, networking is difficult. I attend NHRA meetings regularly, but I was wanting to do more. The mentorship program has been an amazing experience. My mentor gave me a lot of good advice, set me up to network where I would have never been able to before, and was truly interested in my success. I could not have asked for a better mentor. This program has helped me immensely and it was fun!!!"
