What is RMIT Career Mentoring?

As an RMIT student or first-year graduate, you have access to one of the largest and most unique 1-to-1 career mentoring programs in the nation. RMIT mentors are here to offer their expertise and help you grow.

Now in its 12th year, the flagship RMIT Career Mentoring program continues to foster meaningful 1-to-1 mentorships between RMIT students/recent alumni and industry professionals. With RMIT's strong links to industry, students and recent alumni receive instant access to a powerful and diverse network of industry leaders - both locally and globally.

The mentoring relationships made in this program help prepare students and recent alumni for a successful future beyond RMIT.

Join now to become a mentee.

How do I connect with a Mentor?

a) Be paired with a mentor:

During "matching rounds" any non-partnered mentee in the RMIT Career Mentoring Program will be paired with a Career Mentor for an ongoing partnership. Our team will select a mentor specifically for you in the upcoming matching rounds.

Next matching rounds will be March and August 2024.

b) Choose your own mentor:

Browse the profiles of mentors recommended to you or use the search filter to find a mentor whose profile stands out to you. You can search for mentors by industry, organization, location, and more!

Once you’ve found a mentor, you’ll want to send them a one-off meeting request or a partnership request and introduce yourself. You can send up to 4 mentors a meeting or partnership request at any one time.
Once the mentor has accepted your meeting or partnership request, it’s time to prepare for your mentorship.

Before you meet with your mentor, think about your career goals and write down any initial questions that come to mind for your mentor to answer. You may even like to send your questions through to your mentor before you meet, so they have some time to prepare their answers. 

You will find a range of helpful resources and topics to discuss with your mentor in the ‘Mentee Resource Library'.

If you decided to start with a one-off meeting, you now have the opportunity to continue this mentoring relationship in a 2-month mentoring partnership, if both parties agree. Simply click, 'request partnership' on the mentor's profile and wait for the mentor to accept.

Continue browsing and connecting with new mentors each month to build your professional network!

Why should I become a mentee?

As an RMIT mentee, you will:
  • GAIN tailored career guidance and practical advice
  • DEVELOP your employability skills
  • RECEIVE industry insights
  • BUILD your professional network

What makes a successful mentee?

In a 3-month mentoring partnership, you'll want to let your mentor know how often you would like to connect, and what type of communication works best for you (in-person, video-call or phone). We encourage you to spend at least one hour per month building the connection.

Approach your mentoring partnership with an open mind, professionalism, and respect. Be receptive to suggestions and feedback provided by your mentor. Make sure you have thought of some questions for your mentor and come prepared each time you connect.

Please do not ask your mentor for a job or internship. RMIT Career Mentoring is about building your professional network, exploring areas of interest, developing your professional and communication skills, gaining exposure to career options, and connecting your studies and career. RMIT Career Mentoring is not a direct resource for finding a job, though it can often help with this down the line.
