Flash Mentoring Email Template

Email template for the Smeal Flash Mentoring Program

Hi [_____],  

I am a [year] alum of Penn State’s Smeal College of Business, where I majored in [major]. Now, I am living in [location] and working in [field, company, title, etc., as preferred]. 

I am reaching out as part of Smeal’s new Flash Mentoring program, where alumni are available to second-year students in the spring to offer an outside perspective on opportunities to get ahead during this important time. Examples could include resume-building and career planning, academic planning, and student organization involvement, among others. Ultimately, though, the things that are most important to you would take center stage.  

I would be more than happy to have a virtual meeting or phone call with you in March or April to talk further about how I might be able to help you. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone (number) and we can set up a time to talk.

I encourage you to watch this very quick video from one of your peer students, Josh Rubin who talks about his experiences meeting with alumni. 

All the best to you as you move through the spring!  

Best regards,
