Through the Real Experience and Leadership Mentoring Program (REALM), you can spend a day with a professional in your field, and see firsthand how leadership skills can help you stand out and succeed in the workplace.
REALM is a full-day program that lets you shadow a professional in the Buffalo-Niagara region or the New York City metro area held each semester (fall, winter and spring). If you are accepted into the REALM program, you will be paired with a professional based on your major or career interests. You’ll work side-by-side with them for a day, observe what leadership qualities and skills have made that person successful, and develop a mentoring relationship with them. In many cases, you will also have an opportunity to network with other people at the same company or organization.
You are required to apply via UBLinked for participation in Alternative Breaks.
To apply for REALM, please access the application on UBLinked. You can apply for Buffalo-Niagara, New York City or both. Please note that you must complete a 15-20 minute interview as part of the selection process.
