With the aim of mending the broken link between students and alumni, Student Alumni Relations Cell (SARC) launched Alumni Student Mentorship Program (ASMP). ASMP is a comprehensive, semester long program that seeks to foster meaningful and productive one-on-one interactions between students & mentor-alumni in order to help students perform better in their interest fields. Under this programme, we invite our alumni across the globe to interact with the students and help them build their network and gain a new perspective on the possibilities open to them after graduation.
With every step we move ahead in life, we constantly arrive at crossroads where a decision is to be made, and such decisions would eventually decide our future. The students are similarly struck with multiple career options and lack insight into how things would actually materialize with each road that they choose to take, hence we feel that our alumnus who are at pinnacle of their careers can help students with their vast experience of working professionally.
How ASMP Works
Student registration : Students register through a form , filling their preferences of mentors in fields they are interested in along with their general profile and interests.
Allocation of mentors : Based on the preferences filled by mentors in form, common interest and other factors , mentors are allotted to mentees using predefined code.
Interactive Sessions : Mentors work directly with mentees. The ASMP team also has initiatives like Break The Ice and shadow program to help strengthen the relationship.
Post ASMP : The students develop many skills to boost their career, while mentors are delighted with the satisfaction in mentoring relationship. The team, to capture these memories, have ASMP Diaries from the feedbacks that they get from mentors and mentees.
