Career Mentoring Program

The USQ Career Mentoring Program is designed to connect you (the mentee) with an experienced industry professional (the mentor) in order to prepare you for the transition from university to employment. In the program, you are given the opportunity to develop the tools, knowledge and networks necessary to achieve their career goals through a mentoring relationship.

The Career Mentoring Program aims to provide you with:

  • opportunities to develop relationships with employers and industry
  • a chance to enhance your personal development
  • assistance at the 'coal face' to develop your professional career goals
  • networking opportunities to enhance career progression
  • opportunities to enhance your future employability

The Career Mentoring Program does not:

  • guarantee future employment or work experience
  • provide you with assistance in completing their studies
  • identify your goals.

Wherever possible, you will be matched to a mentor who works in a similar field of study and is in a similar location. To assist with the matching process, you are given the opportunity to nominate their preferred mentor from a selection of mentor profiles. Mentors are sourced from business and industry.

How do I become a mentee?

Student registrations for the Career Mentoring Program are accepted in March-April each year. All you have to do to register for the program, is complete the mentee registration form on CareerHub during this period.
