Become a Scarlet Mentor

We thank all of our Rutgers alumni and employers who volunteer their time to help students explore various career paths and grow as individuals. Consider engaging with Rutgers as a mentor through various programs offered by Career Exploration and Success.

Intern for a Day Program

The Intern For a Day program offers employers a platform to provide early education to students on what it means to work in various job and organization types through tours, job shadowing, presentations, informational interviews, and panel discussions.

All employers with approved Handshake accounts are welcome to participate in Intern for a Day. We hope you will agree this program is mutually beneficial. Employers have the opportunity to review what they really look for during intern and entry-level recruiting, explaining required job proficiencies. They will help students develop soft skills and grow their learning and networking communities while simultaneously building their brand, supporting diversity or other initiatives, and creating a foundation for mentoring and future hiring.
