FACULTY MENTORS

Tips for Identifying a Potential Mentor

  • Pursue only research mentors you are truly interested in working with. 
  • Have a polished resume ready when you contact potential mentors.  We recommend using this resume template.
  • Do not rely solely on email!  Show initiative by setting up an appointment, calling, or going directly to a professor’s office to discuss the opportunity.
  • Use who you know!  Using your network of friends, classmates, and professors is a great way to learn about and find the right mentor for you.
  • Be assertive and professional, but not entitled!
