Shashank



As a college student, it is often tough to get corrective guidance from an experienced individual. The student community around us is just as inexperienced as us. This is where ASMP appealed to me. Experienced alumni with tremendous professional experience mentor students to help us align our core priorities. Dynamic guidance ensures that we get the right advice at the right time to maximise output and streamline efforts so that we don't get any wake-up calls when placements come knocking a few years down the line. My expectations were realised when my mentor helped me chart out a short term (1-2 years) career plan. I wanted to explore and discover my interests. He guided me by planning and mapping all the opportunities in the respective fields. He also gave me a Gullu treat on the first day to help break the ice!
Concluding, I would like to suggest to all the future mentees that it is always best to help your mentors relate to you. Enhancing relatability will work wonders if you have picked a mentor who is quite similar to you. I feel it is a bit trivial to ask about academics from the alumni mentors. However, you should use it as the first step to learning networking. It is also an excellent opportunity to learn from their perspective since they have gained quite some professional experience after their journey in IIT

In my first year, I was confused about preparing for the profile or job I wanted. I soon discovered that there were a lot of students with aims similar to mine. It was then that I decided to participate in ASMP. My mentor gave me some of the most valuable suggestions that have helped me prepare for the placements. Initially, it does take time to break the ice and to get familiar with the mentor. During our first interaction, I hesitated a lot in asking him about his private and professional life. He understood my doubts and told me not to be frightened and call him whenever I wanted. Since then, we were in regular touch and I was able to clear my doubts freely. Because of this homogeneity of thought and experience, ASMP shines above all the other types of mentorship that IIT offers. I would conclude by saying that mentees should always try to get along with their mentors as you do with your elder brother or friends and ask all kinds of doubts. It’s better to ask now than to regret your decisions later.

ASMP beautifully connects talent with the relevant mentor; I was given the option of pitching from a pool of brilliant alumni.From experience, I can confirm that the mentors provided in this program are one of the best! Not only successful in their respective fields, but they are also kind and understanding- which is what appealed to me the most in this program. Once the program started, I was able to strongly connect with the right person. We spoke about our careers and lives. And he assigned me a few tasks to help me cope with my current situation and achieve my dreams. All in all, the programme was enjoyable and educational. The entire procedure paved my steps to reach the right place. I am ever thankful to SARC for this platform and of course, to my mentor, Mr. Saharsha.

Alumnus



As an alumnus of such a premier institute, I have always wished to maintain a deep connection with IIT. ASMP gave me an excellent platform to mentor students while also maintaining a relationship with the institute. Besides, I enjoy mentoring students, so it was also a good fit from that point of view! As a mentor in ASMP, I was presented with a unique opportunity: help your mentees grow academically and professionally by sharing your perspective and experiences! I successfully guided a few of my mentees and felt really happy I was able to help. I still remember one of my mentees, who introduced himself via email. He also had a series of doubts about his career options. Clearly, he had the spark, and I had the match! We stayed in touch for the time he was in college through periodic texts and a few calls. I used to guide him in course selection, internship applications, interview preparation and the like. Honestly, the best interactions have been with mentees who were clear about what they wanted from me and maintained an ongoing relationship rather than just contacting me one-off. Therefore my suggestion would be to remain in active contact with your alumni mentors and keep them updated about your academic progress while also utilising our guidance to pave your way towards your desired career.
