Career mentoring at QUT has run for almost 30 years. We have a community of mentors from diverse industries, professions, locations and experience levels volunteering their time to help shape and support the professional development of QUT students.

With the support of mentors from all disciplines, our students are given the opportunity to

  • learn from industry professionals
  • better understand their future careers and ways to be successful.

Why get involved?

Many mentors list their passion for helping others as a reason to mentor students. Mentors help support and shape the next generation of graduates to achieve their professional goals, and this is reciprocal as mentors are given the opportunity to develop themselves further as leaders.

If these are important to you, then you may be a brilliant fit as a mentor. Mentoring is also a great way to build professional networks with future talent.

How does it work?

The mentoring community is a space to network with students, industry professionals, and QUT academic and professional staff. You can:

  • discuss topics
  • join interest groups
  • answer student questions
  • access resources
  • build your professional networks.

We also run an annual Career Mentor Program (May-October) where you can get paired with a student to build a longer-term fortnightly connection.
