Mentorship & Networking

Mentorship and networking are key ingredients to career success. When you have access to mentors who can provide guidance and support in your career journey, you can make more informed decisions for your future career opportunities. When you engage in networking opportunities, you will develop meaningful connections that will support your career vision.

Mentorship

Take advantage of the largest one-on-one business mentorship program in Western Canada: Mentors in Business. Last year, the Graduate Career Management Centre (GCMC) matched students with over 300 industry professionals. These mentors are keen on helping you build business relationships and offering career guidance and advice. Mentors share their knowledge, experience, and wisdom to help you make informed career choices.
