ΣΑΕ Career Connect is a set of initiatives and resources tapping into Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s national network of Brothers with more than 12,500 undergraduates, over 251,000 living alumni and 12,500 collegians. In today’s diverse and inclusive workplace, it’s important that ΣΑΕs continue to build important life skills that underscore values, accountability, teamwork, resiliency, responsibility, self-awareness, problem-solving, and communication.
This initiative includes the True Gentleman (TG) Mentor Program, ΣΑΕ Backpack to Briefcase, TG Talk, and the ΣΑΕ Job/Internship Board. Membership goes beyond your son’s four years in college, and these initiatives allow them to be set up for success while they are a student and when they enter their professional career. You can learn more about these initiatives here!
The cornerstone of ΣΑΕ Career Connect is our mentorship program. True Gentleman Mentor is an opportunity open to all Brothers—collegians and alumni of all ages—at any career path or professional development level.
Are you considering a career change? Just getting started? Need help with your résumé or a big interview? Career Mentors can partner with you to help you take advantage of your resources to take the next step. A strong Mentor can provide insight, help you grow, and help you identify pathways to success, as well as gain insights from an accomplished professional to help you achieve your professional goals in the career field of your choice.
Are you interested in volunteering as a Career Mentor? Alumni can register to mentor either undergraduates or fellow alumni.
The registration process for both Mentors and Mentees is simple and done through ΣΑΕ’s member portal.
1. Go to portal.sae.net
2. Login or click “Claim Your Account” if you have never logged in
3. Once logged in, click on the ΣΑΕ Career Connect tile
4. Then click either “Request A Career Mentor” or “Sign Up To Be A Career Mentor” and answer the questions.
Backpack to Briefcase is a transitional leadership, post-graduation readiness series directed at upper-class students, particularly seniors. Sessions aim to bridge the gap between the undergraduate college experience and the professional world.
These sessions will be held via Zoom throughout the year and advertised via email and ΣΑΕ’s social media accounts. Look out for those and attend the topics that interest you, especially if you graduate this year.
TG Talk is brought to you by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Foundation and Fraternity and is an opportunity to engage with staff, volunteers, undergraduates, and notable alumni. Join us for discussions on all things ΣΑΕ, including chapter operations, alumni engagement, university relations, ritual, and values. Additionally, TG Talk is a speaker series. We feature guest speakers focusing on leadership, professional development, and current events. As True Gentlemen, we must always strive to rise above. One of the ways we do that is by continuously learning.
