New Alumni-to-Student Mentoring Series - Starting This October


Would you like to connect with Trinity Alumni working in various Sectors?  Want to boost your career prospects?  Unsure what to do after College?

Register for one of the new alumni-to-student mentoring events starting this October to learn more.

Refreshments and networking time with potential alumni mentors will be available at each event and there will also be an introductory discussion to highlight the benefits of mentoring. The room will have designated job sector zones where you can chat with a number of mentors working in specific sectors. After attending the initial ‘meet a mentor’ event students are encouraged to connect with potential mentors to further a mentoring relationship. Mentors and mentees can connect by email, Skype, in person or via our new online mentoring platform (coming soon)

Mentoring is a great way to boost your career prospects by getting guidance and support from an experienced graduate of Trinity. Mentors can help you with preparing for the world of work, discuss career options and offer practical assistance with getting jobs or a place on a postgraduate course.
