PBA business majors enter speed-mentoring program

Business majors at PBA have been entering the speed mentoring program for the last three years.
Students at Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA) who attend the Rinker School of Business have started a speed-mentoring program.

“The session was a great way to interact with the mentors and see what they are like in person versus whatever information I can read about them online,” PBA junior Kayleen Smith said. “I hope to learn how to deal with stressful and difficult situations at work and how to balance work and my personal life.”

The program helps students majoring in business pair with business professionals who will be able to help them with career exploration and development.

“My life would not be where it is today if I were not mentored by other bright and successful business men during my undergrad and graduate years,” Josué Léon, student and volunteer mentor, said.

The mentoring program, in its third year, uses the speed-dating concept.

“Many of the mentors were involved in careers that I did not even know existed,” PBA junior Emily Freeman said. “I was also able to gain a lot of knowledge simply through the quick interactions, which made me even more excited to be part of program.”
