Thanks to alumni looking to give back to BAP, our members have the opportunity to network with industry professionals and build meaningful relationships. Find out below about the different ways Alumni contribute to professional development, such as through mentorship and speaker panels.
What were your expectations for the mentorship program before it started?
What were some of the things discussed during the mentorship?
What did you learn from the experience?
How have you applied your mentor's advice in your academic/professional career?
She helped me decide what I wanted to do for my future especially what field I should look into. It also helped shape what side of Actuarial Science I wanted to pursue.
Did you have any mentorship while in BAP? If so, what was the experience like?
I did, I had a mentor and informal mentors who helped with career advice and resume reviews. It was very helpful as it got me my full-time job (where I still am right now). It was casual in that all I had to do was message / meet up with upperclassmen in BAP and they gave me their honest advice on job and intern recruiting.
What motivated you to take on a mentee?
I really enjoyed my experience in BAP during undergrad and felt that the mentorship I received there helped me greatly after graduation! I wanted to give back to BAP and stay connected to the organization.
One of our tech-focused panels this past semester! We've also had a consulting panel, and we're looking forward to more opportunities to connect with industry professionals in the future.
