This program will provide you with an opportunity to work one-on-one with an Alumni Mentor in your chosen field who can help you to navigate various career options, develop professional skills and expand your network. Mentors are Carleton alumni who are seasoned professionals and industry leaders who want to share their knowledge, resources and passion.

Mentees are either: 1) hard-working students (undergraduate or graduate) in their third or fourth year of study or, 2) motivated recent graduates (Class of ’18, ’19 or ’20).

To ensure that your partnership is successful, the program requires that all mentor and mentee pairings commit a minimum of one hour each month to meeting. We encourage you to meet face-to-face, if possible, and touch base regularly by phone, email or social media.

There are a limited number of mentors and we will endeavour to make the most compatible matches possible; taking into consideration your mentor preferences, interests, desired industry and year of graduation. If there is not a suitable match for you from within the current mentor database, you will be added to our wait-list and we will attempt to seek out an appropriate mentor for you.

Mentee applications for the Fall 2020-21 mentorship program are open. Please click below to apply.
