SSP offers an Alumni Mentor Program to help current students build their network in the security community. Students who sign up are assigned to a participating SSP alum. The matching process is done carefully to link students with alumni based on their interests, background, and career goals. Ideally, the mentor relationship begins during the student’s first semester and progresses to the point where the mentor can make specific career suggestions, serve as a reference, and help the student forge additional professional relationships.
