Bright Futures Mentoring Program
Interested in a Bright Employment Future?
The Bright Futures Student-Alumni Mentoring Program is back in Session 2, 2019! The program is a collaborative project between Alumni and Development and Careers & Employability. This exciting program is designed to match students with alumni in a related industry and provides a learning experience for students that connects the classroom to the ‘real world’. Mentoring relationships are:
- Professional in nature
- Enhance connections between study and the world of work
- Assist students with the transition from university to employment
- Provide an opportunity for professional development, networking and idea exchange between experienced professionals and the next generation of leaders
- Involve alumni (and industry) back in the life of the University in a meaningful way.
