The mission of the CBBS Tiger Ties Mentorship Program is to provide students with a real-world opportunity to explore and discover professional goals while guided by successful and talented Clemson graduates. These interactions promote engagement, career and professional development, and a successful transition from backpack to briefcase.
Student participants gain a head start on creating professional networks that extend beyond University borders while also benefiting from the exchange of skills, knowledge and expertise shared by mentors. The mentoring relationship is a partnership and mentors benefit as much as mentees do. Mentors are able to give back to their alma mater by helping a student who is experiencing what they experienced as a collegiate.
Matching for one-on-one mentor/mentee relationships is accomplished by an online software system developed specifically for the Tiger Ties Program. The program uses a web-assisted software tool that provides resources needed for a successful mentoring experience. The unique match formula pairs mentees and mentors who have the right skills and competencies to assist them in achieving their goals and objectives.
