The full-time Professional Advisor will serve as a learner’s personal guide through their time in UNE’s Academy from initial inquiry to alumni engagement by helping learners assess their current skills and interests, matching them to in-demand career groups, supporting them throughout the academic and experiential program, and introducing them to participating employers.

The Professional Advisor also develops sustaining connections with technology leaders at leading Maine businesses, gaining respect for the program and maintaining employer participation.

We are also seeking 2 Professional Mentors to work up to 10 hours a week with students in Interface, Analysis, and Project Management programs to provide guidance, meaningful feedback, and relevant learning while the student works on curated business projects to enhance their education within the UNE Academy. Mentors will lead at least one live meeting a week at one of our Learning Hubs in Portland, Lewiston, or Bangor, and the remainder of learner support will be virtual via our collaboration platforms.

Ideal candidates will have deep professional experience in digital, computing, data and/or information sciences and possess the ability to convey that knowledge to a wide variety of learners.
