A gratifying experience
Stephen O'Brien, John Holland Group
'I get a lot out of the scheme. It has never been a one-way street. It's a chance to relive vicariously the fun and discovery of my own university years and share the youthful enthusiasm of some bright young person.'
For over two decades, our career mentor scheme has given our students opportunities to build networks and relationships, and get important real-world experience. It's also been a way for our alumni and the wider professional community to give back to QUT.
We're about to start redeveloping our mentoring program to renew and refresh its content, and to expand the program so more students can participate. The new program will launch in 2020.
While we're redeveloping, we'll be inviting people who have previously participated in the program to collaborate with us to make the career mentor scheme better than ever before.
If you'd like to participate, there are many ways you can be involved. You could complete a survey, attend a workshop, provide feedback or even be involved in piloting the new program.
