Your membership in Theta Tau, not only indicates to employers your success in academics, and now offers you Ambition in Motion (AIM). This is how AIM works for you:
Think of eharmony ® for Mentorship
- Mentors are Theta Tau alumni who are volunteering their time for you
- We developed an algorithm to match you, through the full slate of Theta Tau alumni based on compatibility, with qualified mentors for your needs and interests
- No need to worry about location, AIM uses an online process
- There is a full FAQ on the site to answer most if not all of your questions
Participation is easier than you probably think
- There are four, online workshops at times you can fit into your schedule
- Meet with your mentor at least three times, 30-minutes each, over the phone, video chat, or in person if feasible
- Meet with your Brand Ambassador (more on that below!) throughout the semester, offering program feedback
- Pay a $50 deposit when signing up, that you get back upon successful completion
- Completion means you are eligible to get connected with AIM’s employer partners
- for jobs and internships that you would like
Interested? How about adding a paid internship by being your chapter’s Brand Ambassador (BA)?
- The BA is the liaison between other students, AIM, and the mentors to make sure everything runs smoothly
- They will encourage peers to sign up for the program, offer feedback and guidance, and be the main point of contact for AIM on campus
- Market the program in creative ways on a regular basis
- This is a one-year paid commitment
Think about how this will look on your resume!
