CONNECT. BUILD. INSPIRE
The USQ Industry Mentoring Program is open to all students currently studying at the University of Southern Queensland. This program aims to connect students with industry professionals to expand on their industry knowledge, understanding and professional networks to prepare them for their career and transition from university to employment.
This program allows participants to opt-in and out as the year progresses. Therefore join for 2 weeks or the full 32 weeks – it’s completely up to you. Students may connect with as many mentors as they wish across the program time-frame and through various mentoring methods. Mentors can select their availability for the following mentoring types and can update their preferences as the year progress:
- An ongoing mentoring connection for a time-frame specified between the student and mentor,
- One-time mentoring option for a single, one-off meeting to discuss a specific topic, or
- Both, students can send requests for both one-off meetings and ongoing mentoring connections.
Students will lead the way in this program by browsing the list of available mentors and sending a connection or meeting request via the mentoring platform to one (or more) of the mentors listed. Students and mentors are able to view the individual's mentoring profile before sending/accepting a mentoring request - so be sure to make an effort in creating your profile!
Guidance and support is provided by the USQ Careers and Employability team throughout the entire program. The program is NOW OPEN and closes 30 November. Please note you may withdraw from this program at any time.
