What We Offer

Bulldog Mentoring

What is the Purpose of Bulldog Mentoring?

  • Bulldog Mentoring provides a forum for networking between students and alumni.
  • 80% of career opportunities are found through networking; however, networking is not about asking for a position; it is about building relationships and asking for advice and information.
  • Students and alumni can navigate their career paths by connecting with alumni who can provide advice in a particular field.
  • Bulldog Mentoring builds upon the strong bond of attending Mississippi State.

Who are the Mentors?
Mentors are alumni who have volunteered to provide current students and fellow alumni with career advice. They can relate to your experience and the questions you have about your academic major, career goals, and internship and full-time professional opportunities.
