Macaulay Alumni Career Mentors provide career advice and help build a professional network for current Macaulay students. Mentors are recruited from among graduates enrolled in medical, law and other graduate degree programs, as well as those employed in a variety of professional fields.
They work one-on-one with current Macaulay students interested in a similar career path. Alumni provide application and interview preparation, general career support, networking and guidance.
“Sameen pushed me to learn more about the field of medicine through clinical experiences and guided me through a process filled with much introspection and self-discovery.”
– Alex Bonilla ’15 (City College)
“Building networks was instrumental in shaping my perspective of ‘learning’ in the truest sense, it also showed me the important role an individual can play in the lives of others down the road.”
– Sameen Farooq ’10 (Brooklyn College)

The time commitment varies by student, but mentors are expected to donate at least two hours to each student per semester. The mentoring sessions are informal and arranged directly by the alum and the student. Alumni from all fields are encouraged to apply.
