Career Mentoring

The Career Mentoring Program, in collaboration with Alumni Relations and Career Development, is designed to connect fourth-year students "Career Mentees", with established alumni "Career Mentors". 

How does it work?

Students receive mentorship, guidance and advice from graduates who have been where they are now. The process begins with an initial meeting between a student and an alumni. In this meeting, applicants get to know one another and discuss their goals and expectations for the program. If, after this first meeting, both parties agree to participate in the program, they will be matched as Career Mentor and Career Mentee for a duration of 6 months.
Program participants are expected to connect through face-to-face meetings and on-line correspondence. This program is an initiative to help students and alumni reach their personal and professional goals.


To be considered for the Career Mentoring Program, all applicants must fill out an application, read the Career Mentoring Handbook and join the Talent Network. Accessibility is important to us. If you require accommodations due to a disability in order to participate fully in this program, please email us in advance so we can make the appropriate arrangements.
