Overall Rewarding Experience
Mentor (Former Employee) – Dobbs Ferry, NY – January 21, 2016
As a peer mentor, I had open flexibility to meet with my students that were assigned to me. It was a positive experience as a leadership role. I would advise my students about on-campus opportunities, as well as academic studies. As for my co-workers, they were all pleasant to work with and were willing to work events with me. My management was very professional, flexible and willing to help me. I learned how to mentor my students in a way that helped them make better academic decisions. The most enjoyable part of this job was bonding with my students, knowing that I was able to help them when other advisement could not. The hardest part of this job, I would have to say, was receiving a successful response rate from all of my students; while I was assigned a large group of students, I would only receive responses from a small amount of students simply because the others would not reply when I reached out to them repeatedly. Overall, I enjoyed my role as a peer mentor and would like to pursue further tutoring/mentoring positions.
