Our mentoring program is structured for 6 months, where ten students who are accepted to our program get one-on-one guidance on their careers. The accepted students are grouped together into 2-3 people groups based on their career goals, and each group is assigned a mentoring coach. The mentoring coach meets with his/her group periodically to determine needs and conduct various group activities/workshops (ie. how to create your resume, how to write a cover letter, how to prepare for behavioral interviews etc.) It’s required for mentees to attend these workshops and complete the activities in order to successfully complete the program.

Throughout the program, the mentees will be able to work with their mentoring coaches to get guidance on their general questions, and they will have access to our closed network to get connected with our mentors with specific expertises to get one-on-one career advice.

The application process for our mentoring program opens every 4 months. The accepted students are announced via e-mail within the same month. The program starts in the following month. Next application period will start at the beginning of January 2020.

Apply to Become a Mentor

Mentoring is a great way to transfer knowledge and guidance to mentees and support them develop and grow. It aims to share thoughts and perspectives in order to help someone with less experience to progress on their journey.

Mentoring provides an opportunity to develop skills on coaching, listening, management and communication, while it also ensures that someone who is looking for guidance is supported. It allows mentors to reflect on themselves, build their leadership skills and learn from their mentees who can introduce them to different perspectives.

By becoming a mentor, you can:

  • Have an opportunity to build your coaching, listening, management and communication skills.
  • Get connected with mentees and provide them with opportunities.
  • Witness how your career goals and experience can inspire others.
  • Enjoy the pleasure of helping someone
