Rian Immigrant Center supports a new initiative from the U.S. State Department’s ECA Office of Alumni Affairs called MentorTalks. MentorTalks puts exchange program participants and alumni in touch with extraordinary mentors on a wide variety of topics.
Alumni get a chance to learn a little about each mentor and their career, and then ask questions on their topic, all in 15 minutes.
Some Previous MentorTalks Include…
- Advancing Your Career with Exchange Programs – hear tips on how to tap into the power of exchange programs to advance career goals.
- Time Out for Mental Health – Basketball All-Stars and mental health advocates share stories about the importance of maintaining good mental health and reducing the stigma around seeking help.
All of our current and former J-1 exchange visitors are encouraged to take advantage of MentorTalks as they can provide professional advice which will help as you build your career. The series runs on ECA’s Facebook page.
