Discover the Power of Networking

Career mentoring is where experienced business professionals (mentors) can meet with students (mentees) to guide, counsel, and advise on career choices, opportunities, and occupations. Career Mentoring can boost student employability and expand their network and learning beyond the classroom.

At TRU, the Career & Experiential Learning department and the Alumni Office work together to organize Mentoring events on campus and online that introduce students to the benefits of networking and mentorship relationships. Each event will host professionals in various career fields so students can explore different careers and seek advice on entering the job market while expanding their professional network.
