Gator to Gator Coaching Program

The Gator to Gator Coaching Program pairs graduating seniors and recently graduated students with alumni for a virtual coaching session. Each student and coach commit to a one-time virtual coaching session. The session will be 30 to 60 minutes.

This is an opportunity for the student to:

  • Ask questions and receive advice on professional development and current career opportunities.
  • Learn how to navigate the job market during sudden shifts and unexpected challenges.
  • Be connected to the CJC Gator network.
  • Explore possible leads for jobs, internships and externships.
