As the sun starts to come out more consistently for some across the United States, we are thankful for those who are still practicing social distancing, and taking precautions to ensure the safety of themselves and their community members.

We wanted to connect with you about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and how this directly impacts our communities. The well-being and safety of our students and their families is our top priority and will always be on our hearts with all decisions we make as a cooperative. Individual mentors will reach out to their students to co-create a plan of action (when needed) and see what will work best for them and their families. If you have questions, please reach out to your mentor individually.
You have probably noticed that we have changed our name from "I Am Me College Essay Mentoring" to "I Am Me Mentors". This is because we have expanded from one incredible mentor to a cooperative of four! As a tutoring cooperative, each educator has mentored and supported various students over at least 10+ years of experience. Our focus is on the growth of our individual students and the communities we live in. As I Am Me changed from an individual business to a cooperative of educators, we decided that I Am Me Mentors does a better job of representing all of us. I Am Me Mentors will continue serving our communities with the quality services you have grown to know and the personal touch.
"In addition to making sure the schools you’re considering offer the majors and classes that interest you, visit or contact the career development center at each. Find out how the school supports students in preparing for the professional world. Do they offer resume writing workshops? Practice interviews? Networking events with alumni ? If you foresee yourself in a particular field, location, or specific workplace, asl about past students’ track records of finding internships and entry-level jobs in those areas. College admission officers and career counselors are happy to highlight their institutions’ success stories—as well as any unique career launching programs and experiences that their campuses offer. If you’re not sure yet which direction you’ll go in, see if career coaching and personal evaluations are available for students. Many institutions extend career support to alumni, too, which can be invaluable in the early post-collegiate years. As more and more students factoring post-graduate plans into their college decision process, college admission and recruitment officers are emphasizing career support and placement when pitching their schools to prospective applicants."
