Share your knowledge and expertise to inspire the next generation of leaders and industry professionals
As an industry professional, you have the opportunity to share your professional experience and expertise with current RMIT students. The connections made in the Career Mentoring program help prepare our students for a successful future and leave a lasting impact on our RMIT community. Mentors do not have to be on campus to leave a footprint at RMIT. Whether you are based in Melbourne or across the globe, we invite industry professionals from around the world to become a mentor in the RMIT Career Mentoring program.
There are also many professional development benefits for mentors, which include: access to graduate talent for recruitment purposes, further development of your coaching and leadership skills, and growing your professional network via RMIT professional development events for mentors.
Now in its 9th year, the flagship RMIT Career Mentoring program continues to foster meaningful relationships between current RMIT students and industry professionals. Mentors are matched with a student aspiring to work in the same industry, and with a compatible profile.
Launching in June 2020, Group Experience Online mentoring sessions will be offered on a monthly basis for mentors from a wide range of industries. We invite you to join us online to mentor a group of small, highly-engaged students within your area of expertise.
Career Mentoring - Pride is for industry professionals who identify as LGBTQIA+ or who are allies of the LGBTQIA+ community. In addition to providing your Pride mentee with professional advice, Pride mentors offer social guidance and discuss LQBTQIA+ friendly employers.
The Career Mentoring - Express program is a mentee-driven program. Students may reach out to you for mentoring, career advice or even with a question. They may be drawn to your industry, organisation, skills or interests. Being available to offer advice, answer questions, or meet for a coffee are several ways you can help current students succeed in their future careers.
The Career Mentoring - Vietnam program is a global program that connects RMIT Vietnam students and recent alumni with industry leaders and professionals. The program allows students and recent alumni to build their professional network and explore their career options, both in Vietnam and abroad.
