"I really liked how it gave me an opportunity to get in contact with
someone who has already experienced what I am going through right now
and can give me some advices and mentoring, which I would not have had
the chance otherwise. I like the process of it all; it is very easy and
quick to process. The responses were very prompt."
"I've been very interested in my mentor's field of work and this
program gave me a great reason to talk to him about it. I also liked how
the mentor program was kicked off with a BYUH alumnus who talked about
how he got started in his own business. Very insightful."
"My end goal is to be a business consultant, my mentor is a business
consultant (a very knowledgeable and experienced one at that!). She was
super friendly and seemed to genuinely want to help me do well. She told me
how she worked from the bottom up to where she is now."
"It is the best program to build my networking, and absorb
experiences from the professional mentor. I would like to do it again."
"This program connects me with people in my field with similar
interests. My mentor had done similar activities when he was at school
and was able to recommend me things that I can start working on so I can
better prepare myself for graduate school, future employment and
starting my own business."
"I loved all of the advice my mentor gave me. He gave me a lot of
great ideas of how to better present myself and work on my resume."
"I liked being able to hear personal stories and experiences from a
professional. I also like being able to ask questions from someone who is
working in the industry that I want to work in."
"I'm happy with the program and hope to help with the program when I'm graduated from BYU- Hawaii."
"I simply love the idea of this program and the networking and career
learning that can happen. Wish it would have been up and running when I
"This program allowed students to talk with people in the real world
who may have had similar experiences to what the students had. Also, I
feel that it gave the students a sense of reality."
"I have enjoyed meeting with the student and I am still meeting with him and continuing to provide internship opportunities."
"My mentee's goals were well aligned with my current field & lifestyle."
"Alignment of mentee and mentor was very well done. Tracks within
majors have dramatically improved since my time at BYUH to adequately
align course work to field of practice. Mentee is prepared and eager
to transition to the next chapter in his life."
"My mentee and I are still working on interview preparation and
networking skills that are imperative to landing a job in investment
banking. It is not something that one can prepare for in the course of
several weeks. We tried to have a call weekly and I really liked how we
both just made the program into what would be best for him. He was
willing to accept assignments and maintained solid communication through
the program. I believe this worked well because I am doing something
that he genuinely needs and wants help understanding and preparing for.
The mentee-mentor alignment was perfect."
