For several years student members of the North Carolina State University chapter have participated in a mentor program with their sponsoring chapter, the Raleigh-Wake HR Management Association. Each academic year one student volunteers to work with a representative of the professional chapter in coordinating the program. Students and professionals complete a brief enrollment form indicating their career interests and availability. Then the program coordinators match students with local professionals working in various areas of human resources. A mentor program allows students to learn directly from those with experience how to prepare for HR careers and what it takes to be successful in them. Mentor program participants agree: the payoff is great!
