Project Details

City Tutors is looking for a professional(s) to serve as a mentor for a City College of New York (CUNY) course called Vocation, Career and Self-Development which runs from 5-7PM on Thursdays in the Fall semeter. The mentor would help students in the class with revising their resumes, and would conduct mock interviews. Ideally the mentor would be available to come in the class from 6-7pm at least during the first few sessions so that a relationship with the students can quickly be established. Most of the work can be done over virtual platform. The mentor would work closely in coordination with the instructor of the course. Here is a description of the course: This course aims to provide students with practical tools and applied knowledge on how best to find a fulfilling job in today’s, increasingly competitive, job market. It is divided in four parts, or modules. The first deals with vocation; that is, establishing what career path(s) best fit your talents, values and aspirations. The second aims at establishing what kind of experience you need to best achieve your career goals, both in terms of academic study and extra-curricular activities. The third concerns the networking and information-gathering skills you will need, both online and in person, to find the right job opportunities for you. Finally, the last and largest module deals with self-presentation and interviewing techniques, with specific training and evaluation sessions on résumé and cover-letter writing as well as job interview strategy and performance. As an applied and participatory course, classes will involve a variety of pedagogical exercises in addition to lectures by the instructor and a number of invited guests from the business world. Students will be required to participate in mock interviews, acting both as 'interviewers’ and 'interviewees’, but also to comment on and evaluate on each other’s résumés and cover letters, and participate in a number of other in-class exercises aimed at fostering self-awareness, networking skills and team-building ability.
