The Mentor Network

Build your network. Build your community. Build your career.

Mentor Network

Developing meaningful relationships and community building are at the heart of crafting a career. The Mentor Network program is designed to connect students nearing the end of their time in school to industry professionals and networks who can help provide guidance and support during the transition from student to alumni.

Who are the mentors?

Network mentors are Berklee alumni volunteering their time and expertise for the enhancement of career exploration and community building. Network mentors can help to provide:

  • career-related information from a working professional;
  • a behind-the-scenes look at a specific career;
  • answers regarding work-life balance, salary and benefits, and the negative aspects of a particular job; and
  • feedback on your résumé, an expanded network, and job or internship leads.

Who are the mentees?

Mentees are motivated and focused students at Berklee College of Music (Boston campus) and Boston Conservatory at Berklee in their final semesters of their undergraduate or graduate degree programs.

What is expected of me as a participant? 

Mentees and their mentors are required to participate in the entire program, which runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The expectation is that there will be regular and frequent contacts between mentor and mentee, with both aiming for a minimum of two connections per month. Even a quick exchange via email, phone call, or text can make a big difference in building a strong and meaningful relationship.

How do I apply?

To participate, prospective mentees will need to submit a mentor matching survey, which will be open for submissions beginning in February 2021 and closing in March 2021. Information about the application will be sent to eligible students via their Berklee email address. Prospective alumni mentors will receive communication directly from Alumni Affairs.
