Be a career coach
Your knowledge and experiences are priceless for Roanoke students who are looking at a career in your field. Imagine if you could go back in time and talk to your 21-year-old self, how much it would help! Join Maroon Mentors and you can help students find career direction and prepare for their first job. Mentors provide career advice, help students get internships and coach them on networking, resumes and job interviews.

“Speaking to students is really a two way street—they get practical career advice, and we get to learn about the mindset of students and absorb their energy and enthusiasm.”
