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.

Through attending your chosen mentoring event in the Dining Hall you will gain exposure to a broad range of career options and potential mentors. You will also gain valuable networking experience and be encouraged to take the initiative to find a suitable mentor.
