CS Alumni Mentorship Opportunity

This semester, the Department of Computer Science is partnering with the Alumni Mentor Program (AMP) to help graduating seniors leverage the power of the USF alumni network. AMP is built to connect you to alumni mentors for career advancement, community building, and to share with you the unwritten rules of the workplace. Computer Science alumni are eager to connect with you to help you achieve your goals and build your network.
Here are the details:
  • Use the link below to register for the Alumni Mentor Program
  • Select a mentor from the “Computer Science Department” option on the first page
  • Review the available mentors in the directory, and choose the mentor who is right for you. Space fills up quickly as it is first-come, first-serve
  • Watch the AMP orientation recording to finalize the registration process
  • The Alumni Office will then introduce you to your mentor via email
  • From there, you will connect with your mentor once per month (March – May)
Build your network and connect with a mentor. Sign up today!
