Mentor Marketplace, the online platform that connects students & alumni just added a new feature to help students find mentors. The new Search Alert feature allows users to save their searches and get email alerts when new users sign up who match their search criteria. How is this useful? There may not be a mentor for you right away but with the search alert feature you will be notified when there is a mentor that matches the criteria that you selected.
Heres how to set up a search alert feature:
Step 1: Click on the ‘Find an Alumni Mentor’ or Find a Peer Mentor’ tab
Step 2: Select the appropriate filters from the drop down on the right then click update
Step 3: Click on the ‘Create Search Alert’ hyperlink displayed to the left of the ‘Search Alerts’ Button
Now that you have created a search alert, you will be notified when there is a new mentor that matches the criteria you input.
