The Aztec Mentor Program is a collaboration between Career Services and SDSU Alumni that has resulted in over 10,00 matches during the past 6 years. Now in its 6th year, AMP focuses on moving careers forward by providing opportunities to build professional connections to strengthen career readiness.  

Employers are looking to hire college students and recent graduates who are Career Ready. These students know how to communicate their talents, strengths, and drive. Mastering the Career Readiness Competencies will prepare students for a successful transition into the workplace. The eight career readiness competencies are: critical thinking/problem solving, oral/written communications, teamwork/collaboration, digital technology, leadership, professionalism/work ethic, career management, and global intercultural fluency. Visit National Association of College and Employers (NACE) to learn more about career readiness. 

The AMP Talk & Networking Events for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 featured four speakers who delivered short, TED-style presentations focused on a specific career readiness competency to help move students' careers forward. Check out their videos below focusing on the eight career readiness competencies.
