Career Mentors

Career MentorsFrom the first day on campus, students begin working with a personal career mentor from our Executive-in-Residence program.  These executives formerly worked at such companies as Cummins, General Motors and IBM and have significant professional business experience.   Career mentors help students discover career paths and interests-and how to structure your time at Butler to meet your goals. 


There is nothing more satisfying than working with these bright, eager, young students.  It's rewarding to help them discover who they are, where their interests lie, and to encourage them to follow their dreams.  I encourage my students to make a career out of something they enjoy, to find a career that excites and challenges them--not just a job.

The part of my Butler experience that impacted me the most was the multitude of lifelong relationships I formed.  In addition to creating lasting bonds with peers through my classes and extracurricular activities, I developed strong relationships with my advisors, mentors, and professors.  During my career at Butler, I was able to turn to them for guidance and draw on their experiences in the business world.  Even though I have graduated, I keep in touch with many of my Butler contacts and have leaned on them for further assistance and invaluable career advice.
