    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Mentor Connection Graduation!!

Tomorrow, another cohort of the Mentor Connection program will be graduating from the program!! The Mentor Connection program seeks to connect students in the Twin Ports area, including CSS and UMD, with professionals in order to build relationships through networking. The program provides all students with an opportunity to learn more about different careers in the area, polish up their communication and networking skills.

I graduated from the program last year in the spring. I have remained in contact with my mentor and always appreciate the support that I get from him. During the Easter break, we met and caught up on each other as well as discuss plans for the rest of the semester. I visited my mentor at his company and got to meet some of his team. I got to ask about some of his work and gain a few more insights into the tech industry. This is one of the best parts of having a mentor in your field of study or in a field you are interested in going into. You can discuss and ask questions about many things  that you may not learn in your classes.

Wishing all graduates the best moving forward and as they continue to navigate their career paths and options!
