Information for Students

This is the kind of access you came to RMIT for.  With RMIT's strong links to industry, students receive instant access to a powerful and diverse network of industry leaders - locally and globally.  Unlike the flagship Career Mentoring - Melbourne program, students can choose their own mentors.  Each express partnership goes for 2 weeks and mentees can connect with up to 3 mentors at a time.  This program is designed for final year students, or for students who have already completed a 3 month mentoring partnership.

The Express Connection Process 

Career mentoring

Step 1: Find a mentor 
Browse the mentoring portal, view your recommended mentors or use the mentoring filter function to find a suitable mentor. When you’ve found a mentor in the program whose profile stands out to you, you’ll want to send them a message and introduce yourself.

Step 3: Arrange to connect with your mentor
Once a mentor has accepted your connection request, arrange how you would like to connect. It can be an email exchange, an online video chat, a phone call, or sitting down over a cup of coffee. How you would like to connect is up to you and your mentor!
