Mentoring program: easy way to get valuable information

themesdark_0Today I would like to talk to you about the mentoring program. This service is proposed by the CAPs and by the Desautels faculty for management students. I only have the experience from the management side but I guess the process is similar with CAPs’.

What the program does is basically matching current students with McGill alumni, so current students can gain valuable information about what they can do to reach their career goals. This is also a way to learn more about what a particular job of interest looks like, and learn about organizations and industries.

Keys advantages in participating to the program are the following (these are the most important points in my point of view. You can find the entire list here):

  • Helps to further define personal career and other developmental objectives
  • Enables students to identify career trends and opportunities in a field or career of interest
  • Gives the opportunity to learn more from mentors’ experiences, knowledge and personal insight; and to receive assistance and guidance in attaining career related goals
  • Provides guidance in building professional networks
  • Helps determine whether the career, industry or company being pursued matches the student’s skills, interests and expectations.

This program is open to any U2 and U3 students. The application has to be done the year prior of which you wish to have a mentor. I am part of the program for the first time this year but have not been match yet (it should happen very soon though) so I cannot share any experience on the previous points given. However, I will share this experience with you later in the semester as I get to know my mentor. But while waiting for that, I encourage you to get some information about it because it is a unique opportunity!

(Good luck on your mid-terms!)
