Mentor a Student | USQ Career Mentoring Program

The USQ Career Mentoring Program allows students to connect with industry professionals to help prepare for the transition from university to employment. This program aims to enhance students' knowledge, understanding and professional networks, and provides mentors the opportunity to meet, grow and learn from upcoming talent in the industry.

Commitment: You are able to connect with a student in a one-off meeting or for a non-specific timeframe. For mentoring relationships under the non-specific timeframe program, USQ provides guidance for the first 6-weeks and during this time we recommend you connect with your mentee at least once every 10 days, however this is very flexible. Keep in mind you can end your mentoring connection at any point. You'll be initially introduced through email to your mentee, and you can decide together how you'd like to continue connecting.

Program dates: There are set start dates which you'll be able to choose from when registering for the program.

How will it work?

1. Students are able to browse the list of Mentor Bios on the student mentoring platform and submit a request to the Careers & Employability Team with who they would like to connect with. 

2. USQ will review the request and (if appropriate) will send an overview of the student to the mentor for review and approval. 

3. If the Mentor approves the connection, the student and mentor will be e-introduced on the start date of the appropriate program. 

4. Together you will make the decision as to the length of mentorship, goals for the program and frequency of contact to expect. 

The USQ Careers & Employability Team will do what we can to guide the student through the mentoring relationship, encouraging them to drive the relationship.
