Upcoming Mentoring Events

Our annual Alumni-to-Student Mentoring Launch Events will take place this October.  There will be three mentoring launch events, divided by industry. Please register for the evening that best fits with your current industry background. You can choose the sector you're working in, rather than what you studied at Trinity (if the two are different).

The format of these events will consist of a mentor briefing and refreshments followed by a networking reception with students. To register, please click on the individual event links below:

Technology, Engineering and Science: Wednesday, 9 October, 6pm-8.30pm
Media, Arts, Government & Not-For-Profit: Thursday, 10 October, 6pm-8.30pm
Business, Finance, Consulting & Entrepreneurship: Tuesday, 15 October, 6pm-8.30pm

If you would like additional information about the upcoming alumni mentoring events, email alumni@tcd.ie or call (01) 896 2088.

Would you like to mentor Trinity students?

Whether you are a recent graduate or have a lot of professional experience, your advice and guidance is invaluable to students starting out on their career path. By mentoring you can provide both reassurance and direction to Trinity students who are deciding what to do next after their studies.

How to get involved

We offer mentoring opportunities both online, via Trinity Alumni Online, and through in-person mentoring events on campus.

Online Mentoring Platform

Join fellow alumni from a wide-range of industries and backgrounds in supporting Trinity students and alumni with their career development.

To connect with potential mentees for mentoring, please sign up to our mentoring platform at Trinity Alumni Online. Once you have activated your profile, students and alumni will be able to send you a mentoring request. You can easily set your preferences for the number of mentees you can accept and the types of mentoring services you can offer.

After you’ve connected with a mentee, you can choose how you want to connect (via email, phone or in person) as well as how often.

Attend a Mentoring Event on Campus

We run several in-person mentoring events for Trinity students throughout the year. Please see below for upcoming mentoring events.

School of Law and School of Dental Science Mentoring Events

Every autumn the School of Law and the School of Dental Science also run bespoke mentoring events for their students. We will update this section shortly once the dates for these mentoring events are confirmed.

What’s involved in mentoring

After attending a mentoring event, you can sign up on Trinity Alumni Online where students will be able to send you a mentoring request. We recommend that you connect with or speak with your mentee(s) three times over a six-month period (via phone, email, in-person, etc.). To learn more about your role as a mentor, read the Trinity Career Mentor Handbook, which includes Mentor FAQsGuidelines and Top Tips.

Students who complete, sign and submit the Tracking My Mentoring Journey document to the Careers Service by a specified date in March will receive a Mentoring Certificate of Completion. As part of this process you’ll need to discuss the document with your student mentee and co-sign it.
