Career Mentorship

The Career Mentorship Program gives students the opportunity to connect with HR industry professionals and recent graduates. Third or final year students benefit by acquiring knowledge before entering the professional HR workforce. Having a mentor is a great way for a student to receive career and academic advice. Previous participants in the program gained access to exclusive conferences, career opportunities and the ability to leverage their professional network.Take advantage of this great opportunity and apply for the next upcoming academic year!

 

The CEP centre, in partnership with the RHRAA and HRSA, is proud to announce the HRM/OB Career Mentoring Program is entering its 3rd year! This program aims to connect current 3rd and 4th HRM/OB students with alumni to assist students in the process of decision-making and the transition into their careers.

 

Program Objectives:

The intent of the HRM/OB Career Mentoring Program is to better prepare mentees for their desired career field in HRM/OB by providing professional and personal development support.

 

Benefits:

 An effective mentor can shorten your learning curve (you don’t have to make all of your own mistakes – you can learn from the best practices of others).

·         Explore various industries of choice and identify related-professional career alternatives

·         Work closely with professionals in a realistic environment

·         Networking opportunities – Your mentor can be a useful “connector” and “hub” to extend your own network

·         Gain insight of challenges, how to overcome them and the criteria to being successful in the industry

·         Understand:

  •  Professional and networking etiquette
  •  How to bridge classroom knowledge with workplace environment
  •  Have someone guide you through your professional learning goals

 

Eligibility:

·         Academic Year: 3rd or 4th year students with a genuine interest in further developing their career learning goals
