What is the time commitment?
We ask participants to participate in 6-7 one hour meetings throughout the academic year. Typically this breaks down to about an hour a month. Meeting times are flexible and based on student availability. All other offerings are encouraged but not required.
Do I have to attend any in-person meetings?
Potentially! We leave the logistics of meetings up to our mentors and their groups to allow for flexibility. We've found the best sessions are held in person but your group may meet online to ensure full participation.
Why should I worry about professional development now?
The earlier you start thinking about professional development (ie. resume writing, presentation skills etc.) the easier it will be when you begin searching for an internship and/or job searching post-graduation.
