Welcome to the
UNSW Career Discovery Mentoring Program

The UNSW Career Discovery Mentoring Program provides students with the opportunity to discover potential career and vocational futures through a mentoring relationship that facilitates greater self-awareness of skills, knowledge, experiences and attributes. It connects UNSW students from their second year of study with established industry professionals, providing students with a significant opportunity to focus on their career development.  
Over a 5-week mentoring period, students will receive guidance from mentors and gain knowledge of industries and sectors, career options, industry trends, workplace culture and dynamics. Students will also gain insights into their skills, knowledge, values and attributes, as well as reflect on their experience and learn from the experience of mentors. The program provides the opportunity to build personal and professional networks with mentors and fellow mentees.
