We offer two types of Group Mentoring—Group Mentoring with industry professionals and RMIT alumni, and Group Mentoring with RMIT partner organisations.
Group Mentoring sessions allow you to receive mentorship. gain tailored career advice, and learn from mentors who were once in your shoes. You will also discover how to stand out from the crowd and set yourself apart when applying for jobs!
Research shows that we feel more confident and we can accomplish more in groups. That's why we started Career Mentoring - Circles.
Circles are small groups of RMIT students, who meet regularly with one or more industry mentors to receive mentorship, gain career guidance, learn new skills, and support one another's academic and career goals.
If you're looking for a like-minded community to help you learn and grow, you'll find circles to be a rewarding experience.

As a mentee, you have the opportunity to connect with a variety of mentors for a one-off mentoring meeting or a 3-month mentoring partnership.
