- Inver Hills students and alumni/ae have the opportunity to connect with professionals in a variety of career fields through our Mentoring Network. Students and alumni/ae can access the Mentoring Network once they have registered at College Central via their CNN homepage. We encourage students to take advantage of this opportunity and connect with mentors who can advise and support them in their professional development. Mentors offer one or more of the following avenues of assistance: career/graduate school information and advice; an opportunity to "shadow" the mentor in his/her workplace; leads to internships and jobs; and housing during the course of an internship. Alumni are encouraged to use the mentoring network for their own development as well.
