Student Veterans of America is seeking mentors!
SVA is pleased to announce a partnership with American Corporate Partners (ACP) to help you make the most out of your powerful combination of military experience and classroom knowledge.
American Corporate Partners’ mission is to connect post-9/11 veterans with experienced volunteer Mentors from more than 60 leading companies such as Coca-Cola, Deloitte, IBM, Raytheon, and UBS.
Mentors can expand your professional network, provide personalized career insight and work with you on your internship and job search strategies while you complete your degree, as well as post-graduation.
Connecting with a Mentor is free and simple. Complete a brief application and phone call with ACP staff to share more about your military background, interests, and career goals. ACP then handpicks a Mentor for you to work with one-on-one for a year. Throughout the year, ACP staff will provide support, tips and resources for making the most of your mentorship experience.
More than 6,000 service members and veterans have already completed their mentorship with ACP, and 97% would recommend the program to fellow veterans. Student Veterans who have completed ACP’s program have discussed internships, presentation skills, résumé and interview preparation, career path clarity, graduate school, small business development and more.
Visit ACP’s website to learn more and apply today. Mentorship openings are limited, so please apply by October 30th so that ACP staff can give your application priority.
Please mention that you were referred by SVA on your application. If you have questions about ACP’s Mentoring Program, please reach out to ACP staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-752-0700.
ACP’s Mentoring Program connects veteran Protégés with corporate Mentors for yearlong mentorships. Paired based on their career objectives and professional experience, Mentors and Protégés define the goals of their mentorship together. ACP is not a formal hiring program – instead, ACP is focused on preparing a veteran for a fulfilling new career in the private sector.
