Husky Mentor Network [First Hand] → Participants should expect an email in the next few days to create an account. This is where mentees can make appointments with mentors/alumni. Once set up, students can begin making informational interviewing appointments. These do not have to be limited to someone from your major, as you are practicing your skills and getting feedback. As this is another opportunity to interact with mentors, you are not limited in the number of practice sessions you can have.
