Job S.H.A.R.E

The Job Students Hear Alumni Real-World Experiences (SHARE) program is a unique opportunity for students of the College of Global Futures to connect with alumni from the college in order to explore their primary career interests. The program opens applications each semester, and students are encouraged to participate more than once.

What to expect

Each semester, students are invited to apply to the program. Students provide information about their career interests and select the top three alumni mentors they would like to be matched with from a dropdown menu. Participants are encouraged to research their potential mentors to learn more about their places of work. Once a student is matched with a mentor, they will be introduced by email in order to set up their conversation over Zoom. These conversations will consist of discussions about the mentor’s career and the student’s career interests and questions.

Student testimonials

It was great getting to know how to start working for utility companies that focus on solar power. Also, my mentor had really great advice about places to search for jobs and what qualifications are important for these kinds of positions.

This is a great program, and I think ASU should continue to offer opportunities like this in the future!

Alumni testimonals

I have always enjoyed this program as it offers the student a great window to see what their career paths might be and allows me to give suggestions and advice that I would have appreciated when I was in their shoes.

Mentor, 2021

The program has obvious benefits to the student if conducted well, but I found benefit in being able to learn about what the newest sustainability professionals are thinking about.

Mentor, 2021

I really enjoyed hearing from a current student about how the college/sustainability program has evolved and matured over time. I hope Anna was able to get some interesting or insightful feedback from me about how the ASU program and experience translated for me into a career and what strengths of her own she can bring to bear (directly or indirectly) when she eventually strikes out on her own an bring to bear (directly or indirectly) when she eventually strikes out on her own career search.
