The Harvardwood Mentorship Program fosters meaningful professional relationships by matching Harvard graduates with more established alums in their fields of interest, for a period of nine months of one-on-one career mentoring.
The time commitment will be approximately 3-4 hours. Mentors will connect with their mentees in 3-4 meetings over the course of the year, usually October - June. Given COVID-19, virtual meetings are encouraged.
Topics to be discussed during meetings can include the following:
- The mentor's advice for perfecting one’s craft: acting, singing, songwriting, music producing, directing, or writing
- The mentor’s current position, what they do, their career progression
- Career advancement advice
- How to handle difficult professional situations
