In celebration of our Mentoring 4 Impact pilot program, invitations were sent to students, mentors, instructors, and John Jay staff members.
Molly Pearl, CUNY Veteran Student Advisor/ LEADS Job Developer shared insights on the ground-breaking program of Mentoring 4 Impact and thanked Image Impact International for bringing it to John Jay students.
Michael Sachs, John Jay Dean of Students attended and congratulated the Image Impact team for a terrific pilot program and looks forward to more engagement with our programs in the future.
Marking this milestone event, we offered headshots for students and door prizes of gift cards, professional pens, etc.
How did you find out about the program?
I found out about the program from Chandrika Surajpal (Student LEADS Support Specialist, Office of Accessibility Services at John Jay College).
He told me to give it a try. So, I gave it a shot and I liked it! I went through the whole program. I learned how to create a resume, I learned to do the 30 second elevator pitch. It was great and it was fun! …Some of the staff helped with LinkedIn and to create a profile, so I can get a good job. …it was very active, I also got to do mock interviews . . . They helped to write it out, to know how I would say it during an interview.
It sounds like to was a very social experience.
It was very hands-on…which I liked. It really helped me learn what to do.
Adding…if Mentoring 4 Impact is around the area, give it a try. If you like it stay or try something else. If you want to learn how to write a good resume and sent to out you should try M4.
