CQUniversity graduates can sign up to the Industry Connect Program as mentors to students, or as mentees to fellow alumni.
This program is a fantastic opportunity to give back to students by helping them prepare for their career. It’s also a great opportunity for mentors to practice your coaching, mentoring and leadership skills, and for mentees to learn industry insights and develop your personal networks in your field.
Watch a short video to see an experienced mentor talk about the convenience and benefits of online mentoring.
Signing up takes less than three minutes if you connect your LinkedIn profile, which automatically imports details including work and education history (or you can manually create your profile).
Once you have set up your profile, mentees can contact you through the system.
Consultations are conducted online through conference numbers, and messages are routed through the system meaning contact information is not shared between mentors and mentees (unless you choose to do so).
Sign up to the Industry Connect Program today!
Please note: the CQUni Career Connection platform is most compatible with a Google Chrome web browser.
