Our department has started (2014) a program that matches undergraduate majors with Earth Scientists who have gone on to careers outside of academia. The mentors talk with undergrads about course selection, major/minor pathways, construction of a resume, how to conduct a job search, how to interview etc.
Our mentors are presently employed:
Please contact our undergraduate advisor, Prof. Josh West (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information about applying for a mentor.
