The Career Mentor Program (CMP) & Indigenous Career Mentor Program (ICMP) run Sept - April annually.
Step 1: Register for the program
Registration remains open throughout the academic year, from September to April. Please select the appropriate registration link listed to the right or below.
Note: When completing the CMP registration form, please indicate which specific occupation you'd like to learn more about.
Step 2: Attend an orientation session
Following completion of your registration form you'll be prompted to register for an orientation session. This step happens prior to being matched with a mentor.
Step 3: Contact your mentor and prepare for your meeting
When students and mentors are matched, the program coordinator sends the mentor’s contact information to the student. Students must contact their mentor within two weeks to set up a meeting date. Meeting dates are mutually agreed upon and often are set for weeks in advance.
Students also complete research and continue to prepare their questions for their mentor in advance.
Step 4: Students and mentors meet for an informational interview
Students visit the mentors for one-time, one hour informational interviews. Meetings may be virtual or take place at the mentor's workplace, or at another mutually convenient location. Site tours and job shadowing are also options, depending on the occupation and the mentor. Some students and mentors may choose to meet more than once.
Step 5: Complete a student evaluation form
Students provide feedback on their overall experience. If they want to meet another mentor, they can indicate this on their form.
