Career Mentor Link
The University of Western Australia’s Career Mentor Link matches professionals with students, providing an opportunity for students to benefit from the industry knowledge and career experience of their mentors.
We are always seeking professionals to mentor, support, guide and encourage UWA students. Your role as a mentor is vital to program’s success and the University would value your participation as one of more than 400 mentors a part of the annual program.
The journey of a mentor
Your journey as a mentor commences in May when we match you with a student based on their career interests and study to your own industry experience. Many of our matched mentors and mentees meet for the first time at the Career Mentor Link Launch Breakfast held in early May. During your first meeting we ask you to sign an agreement that sets out the goals and meeting or contact schedule for the duration of the mentoring relationship.
Throughout the following six months until the program formally ends in October, there is opportunity to attend on campus workshops, panels and networking events.
During the entire program fortnightly communication provides mentors with support and guidance as well as support by request.
