One-on-One Mentorship Program

Students are paired one-on-one with a professional in the gaming industry that matches their career interests. Mentees can use their mentors as a resource; they receive advice, support, and an inside perspective on working in games Mentor-mentee pairings are encouraged to meet online once every month during the academic year. CWG officers support mentees in reaching out to their mentor, monitor the status of pairings, and suggest topics for each call.
