USQ Career Mentoring Program
Mentoring a student will provide you with the opportunity to develop your leadership and management skills as well as reflect on your career journey. Make a different in a student's life by helping them learn and grow within your industry.
As a mentor you will have the opportunity to:
- meet prospective employees

- enhance your self-esteem
- build larger networks
- reflect and share your experiences
- participate in a student's development
- develop leadership and management skills
- expand on your interpersonal skills

Mentors aren't required to assist the student in completing their studies, or guarantee the future employment or work experience.
2018 Mentoring Programs
The 2018 Mentoring Programs are currently being finalised and will be advertised in the coming months.
How does the program work?
The program will run via an online mentoring platform called Chronus. Once you enter the platform you will be asked to create your profile. The information you provide in your profile is then used in a matching algorithm against the students’ profiles. Students are then provided with a ‘matching percentage’ to identify the most suited mentor, and from here students are able to send a mentoring request to their preferred mentor.
As this is an online mentoring platform, you can expect to connect with your mentee over phone, by email, skype and if location allows in person.
How to register?
Register will be complete via the Chronus Mentoring Platform. Details will be provided once the programs open.
If you participated in any of the 2016 or 2017 USQ Mentoring Programs, you will still be able to log in with your details from the previous year. If you do not remember you password please select the ‘Forgot Password?’ link from the login page.
For those mentors who wish to receive training on the mentoring platform or on how to have career conversations with your mentee, these opportunities will be offered before the start of each mentoring program.
