BU Mentor Program in LinkedIn

Many college students begin their post-graduation education experience with limited "real world" knowledge about the career fields they ultimately would like to pursue. Recognizing this, the Smith Career Center has developed a network of BU alumni, parents, and friends willing to assist students by sharing information about their professions. The BU Mentor LinkedIn group provides a means of connecting students with these volunteers.

BU Mentor volunteers can assist students by providing one or more of the following:
  • Career information/Industry information (How to use a specific degree)
  • Informational interviews
  • Job shadowing
  • Practice/mock interviews
  • Employer information
  • Employment leads (internship or full-time)
  • Relocation information
The Smith Career Center uses LinkedIn to manage the BU Mentor program. To volunteer as a BU Mentor, please submit this pre-registration form below or go to and search for the group, "Bradley University - BU Mentor Program". Once you reach the group site, you will be able to submit a request to join. Bradley students, interested in reaching out to BU Mentors, will also submit a request to join the group. After confirmation, students will be able to connect with BU Mentors through LinkedIn regarding career information, job shadowing opportunities, etc.

For more information, please contact the Smith Career Center at (309) 677-2510.
