The Beta Sigma Beta Fraternity Mentoring Program is growing by leaps and bounds. At this point, it has helped the brotherhood accomplish two goals. First, it connects undergraduates with alumni on a one-on-one basis to provide career guidance and advice. Second, the program connects alumni in specific industries to foster mutual career growth.

No money or donations are required to fund this program. Instead, all that's asked of participants is to lend time in helping a fraternity brother. A periodic phone call, a friendly ear, your market perspective and career guidance may not mean much to you – but they mean the world to someone else!

In 2014-15, 52 undergrads participated in the mentor program, ranging from seniors to sophomores. To put that participation into context, we launched the mentor program in 2012, and in that year 13 undergrads asked to be included. This past year we had generous support from both undergraduates and alumni in a number of fields, including finance, accounting, medical, supply chain/logistics, marketing/PR, real estate, law, politics, consulting, IT and hotel/restaurant management and the program achieved three distinct levels of success. It helped provide career vision and intelligence, provided resume review and building and offered actual job/internship opportunities.

While the first two successes cannot be quantified, we can report – as a result of this year's program, nine undergrads got jobs or internships directly as a result of their connectivity with their alumni mentor! Further, we can cite two specific instances wherein an alumnus got a new job thanks to the direct assistance of another Beta Sigma Beta alumni bother!

We thank everyone involved in this program for their participation, enthusiasm and support - and look forward to continued successes in the future. To get involved, email Larry Raiman at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
