The Lawrence International Alumni Mentoring Program (LIAM) was developed in 2016 as a collaboration between alumnus Yang Hu '10, Career Services, Alumni Constituency and Engagement, and International Student Services. The primary goal of this mentorship program is to provide personalized guidance to international students to increase their readiness for a professional career in the United States. Each student will be matched with a mentor who has been through the challenging process of navigating the professional and legal obstacles related to securing employment in the U.S. Students and mentors will connect on a monthly basis to go over a variety of topics such as resumes, interviews, summer internships, and specific industries of interest. LI alumni mentors have a wide range of professional backgrounds such as academia, business, healthcare and research. In order to be eligible for the LIAM program, students should be actively enrolled F-1 visa holding international sophomore or junior students.
