Share your career. Engage with HKS students during the January term.


Alumni host students for one day during the January term at their workplaces in different locations around the world. The shadowing experience can last for several hours or a full day, depending on what is most convenient for both individuals. This opportunity to share your career with current HKS students has proven to be very valuable and enjoyable for alumni and students alike.

Sign-up to be a mentor for the January 2020 term.
