Share your journey and tips for professional success

For many students, the transition from student to professional can seem distant and daunting.  Learning about SJSU alumni journeys to career success can help students build courage to take first steps toward their career goals. 

Share your journey to professional success by joining thousands of alumni who have registered to be a mentor on the campus mentoring platform, SJSU2.  Retired alumni and non-alumni professionals who want to mentor Spartans are encouraged to register.
