Mentorship can be life-changing

Exonian Mentors is a new feature within the PEA Alumni Network that connects alums seeking career advice to those who have skills, knowledge and training to offer. 

Sharing your experience, advice and industry insights can be an invaluable gift to Exonians looking to grow in their career, make a change or explore new territory. 

Your shared Exeter experience starts the conversation. The depth of the connection is up to you. 

Become an Exonian mentor 

The process is simple. Opt-in to the program by adding your mentor information, including areas of expertise and industry knowledge, to your alumni profile. Interested Exonian mentees will contact you. You control the time commitment, and you stay involved for as long as you’d like — it’s simple to turn on and off your accessibility online.

When I was a student in law school, I met fellow Exonian Jack Bissell '58 and he had a profound effect on my career path. It’s a relationship that continues to this day and is partly what motivates me to mentor others.”
