Mentoring and advising in higher education: survey

An anthropology colleague of mine, Robert Connolly, created a brief survey to explore how former students perceive the advising they received during their academic career that prepared them to enter the job market.

The purpose of the survey is to determine how and where student expectations and needs for career counseling are met. Is higher education meeting these needs? If so, where and how? What resources outside of higher education do students use to prepare for their careers? Now in the workforce, what advice do emerging professionals wish to provide current students in their field?

As a former student, and a current mentor, I’m excited about the insights and recommendations that will come out of the survey. I encourage any current or past students to take it!

It will take 5 minutes or less to complete and is completely anonymous. Robert will distribute a summary of the results and publish an open-source (and ideally peer-reviewed) article that will be made available through his blog.
