​SJSU HFES 2015 Mentorship Program

The SJSU Human Factors and Ergonomics Society is launching a new mentorship program this school year! This professional support program is designed to match students with an experienced mentor who has similar interests.

The mentorship program will last 3 months (the length of the fall semester until Friday, December 18th).

We ask that mentors meet with their mentees at least once every two weeks for about an hour. This can be in-person, online, virtual, or whatever works best for each. Once mentors and mentees are paired, they can set their own meeting and communication cadences.

This can be as casual or as formal as you decide with your mentee!

Suggested topics of discussion include:

  • What classes to take and when
  • Experiences within the HFE program
  • Encouragement
  • Graduate school life
  • Campus resources
  • Ways to navigate through the field
  • Resume/portfolio development
  • Interview feedback
  • Lessons learned
  • Guidance on the culture
  • Professional expectations of the field

The application deadline is Sunday, September 13, 2015 at 8:00 PM.


To become a mentor, one must either be:

  • a current student that has been in the program for at least a year OR
  • an alumnus of the human factors & ergonomics program OR
  • a professional working in a related field

That’s it! If you are interested in becoming a MENTOR, please apply here.


To become a mentee, one must be:

  • a current student at SJSU
  • a paid member of HFES
    (Membership is $10 per school year and can be paid to any member of the HFES Council)

If you’d like to apply to become a MENTEE, please apply here.
