Do you have an hour a week to volunteer as a career mentor? The Career Mentorship Program involves pairing an internationally trained professional with a Canadian currently working in the same or a similar field. The Mentor contributes approximately one hour per week over a minimum three month period to the partnership. However, typical mentorship relationships last longer. Together the Mentor and Mentee develop an employment strategy for the Mentee. Each week they review progress, discuss questions and concerns and further define the strategy. The mentor supports the mentee in developing their professional network, developing an understanding of the Canadian working culture and in fine tuning their cover letters, resume and interviewing skills. The mentor often acts as a source of encouragement and inspiration throughout the employment search process. Please note that we require a minimum of two years’ work experience in Ottawa.
