The student coaching program is a somewhat informal process that pairs a student or recent graduate with an established IARP member. The goal of the program is to allow a student or recent graduate the opportunity to benefit from the expertise and experience of the IARP professional while engaging in their career path.
The coaching process can take place via varied methods that include in person meetings, telephonically, or via e-mail. This can be determined by the coach and student/recent graduate. The coaching relationship is not intended to be a long term process, but one that provides the student/recent graduate with information and guidance that will help them in their career decision making process. It would be up to both parties to determine the length of the coaching process.
The process would be opened semi-annually prior to the completion of the semester, assuming there would be students preparing on graduating at these times. Matches will be made based on coach availability on a first come first served basis, if application is approved.
