Please read before contacting mentors in the W&J CCN Mentoring Network.
When preparing to contact the Alumni Mentors in the W&J CCN, we encourage professionally written messages that are grammatically correct. Construct a succinct message with a reference to the W&J mentoring network in the message. Use formal salutations and closings and show appreciation for his/her time and willingness to be a resource for your career growth.
Note: As it is important to make a positive first impression; please keep in mind that Career Services and your faculty advisors will be great resources for reviewing drafts of your communications.
A sample message might be something like:
Dear Dr. Bilsky,
I read your bio in the W&J CCN Mentoring Network and as a current junior majoring in English, I was wondering if you would be willing to speak with me about your experience as a graduate student at Stanford. I am preparing my own graduate school applications and welcome any advice you might have for me.
Thank you so much for your time and I appreciate your willingness to be a resource for W&J students.

Writer, W&J Red & Black
Or an alternative:
Dear Mr. Van Cleve,
As a W&J student majoring in Business Administration, I am thinking about the sales field as a career direction. After reading your career information in the W&J CCN Mentoring Network, I am very interested in learning more about your work in the field. Would you be willing to speak with me about your work as a Sales Director in a technical field? Any advice you have will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
