The Peer Mentorship Program, coordinated by SWS, WIB, and FA, matches high-achieving upperclassmen who have professional and advanced curricular experiences with engaged students who are seeking to follow in similar career footsteps. Its aspiration is to create an expansive, yet personable, program that allows William & Mary mentors the opportunity to give back to the tight knit business school community and mentees the chance to receive guidance from their older peers.
Each semester, the program takes place over five weeks and each week focuses on a single aspect of professional development, such as resume writing and behavioral interviews. The program coordinators provide the mentors with supplemental materials and guiding discussion questions, and the mentees also have access to group workshops. In the past year, our program has grown from about 20 students to over 70 students, and we now have mentors and mentees from all four business majors.
