Ivy Exec: Mentorship Beyond the Alma Mater
Ivy Exec recently launched a new mentor program on their career community and recruitment site. It puts Ivy Exec members in touch more experienced individuals on the network that volunteer their experience and time to help those more recent in the field. Members can browse the mentors and can connect with one mentor per month and interact via a videoconference on the site.
“All Ivy Exec members have access to the Mentor Network,” said Elena Bajic, Ivy Exec founder and CEO. “In addition to [the job search, mentorship, and resume critique], paid subscriptions also offer these benefits: Full access to job listings (not all jobs are available for free), a dedicated Ivy Advisor, an ability to upload multiple resumes, the benefit of appearing at the top of employer search results, and unlimited live webinar attendance (we hold 2 per month).”
While the site is called “Ivy” Exec, it is not for Ivy leaguers alone. It focuses more on industry and experience, rather than educational background. The new mentor program was devised to help those who have lost touch with their Alma mater or did not have a well-established mentor program at their school to meet with individuals who can offer them advice and guidance in the job market. Bajic adds that the site isn’t just for those well-into their career, but also “provides access to jobs for professionals who are in their early careers (4-7 years of experience), especially in consulting, investment banking, private equity and hedge funds, strategy and marketing positions.”
With the job market still not entirely thriving, Ivy Exec is well worth checking out as a free member to see if their additional, paid options are right for you. Especially for those in more business, finance, and marketing fields, the site may offer a few additional avenues to search for a career.
