Mentoring

NWSA has instituted a program specifically for graduate students going on the job market, both academic and non-academic. Students can sign up for 45-minute one-on-one meetings in which they can bring in their cover letters and CV or resume and get feedback on those documents from a person employed in the field of women 's and gender studies. 

Mentoring Sessions will take place Saturday November 18 at times that will be assigned based on availability of mentors and mentees. Pairs can also arrange to meet at a different time on their own if both members prefer and make arrangements.

This program is coordinated by the Program Administration and Development Committee.
