Getting involved with the Society is a great way to connect with other alumni and to share your knowledge .
Mentoring is a wonderful way to share your experience and expertise with other Winterthur alumni. As a mentor, you might simply answer questions about jobs, coach a young graduate on interview techniques, or advise someone who shares an interest in your particular field. The amount of time you give is up to you. You can opt in and out of the program at any time.
Becoming a Mentor: 1) Sign in to your personal Profile. 2) Click on the Options box located above your personal contact fields. 3) Click on the Mentor button. It will turn red. You will be automatically listed as a mentor in the Alumni Directory. 4) Potential advisees will contact you through the Alumni Directory. 5) To opt out of the program, just follow the first three steps. Clicking on the red Mentor button will turn it off and will remove your name from the program.
Finding a Mentor: 1) Go to the online Directory. (You must be a member of the Society of Winterthur Fellows to gain access.) 2) Go to the Search box and click on Search for a Mentor.
