TRIEC MENTORING PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

Why be a Mentee?

You’ve immigrated to Canada. You have skills, education, and some great work experience – and you’re keen to get started and find a job where you can use those skills and talents. But how do you find that job? Where are the positions advertised? How do you build your professional network?

 

A mentor can help you answer these questions – and more. By talking to a mentor who shares your professional background and knows how the local labour market works, you can get a head start on your journey to success in Canada.

 

You should sign up for the program if:

  • You have two+ years’ experience in your professional field.

  • You have lived in Canada for less than five years.

  • You are unemployed or underemployed (someone who is not currently working in their field of expertise) and looking to reconnect with your career.

 

A mentor can help you:

  • Understand Canadian industry trends.

  • Develop more effective job search strategies.

  • Build your local professional network.

  • Find ways of leveraging your experience and skills.

 

The time commitment for mentoring is 18 hours over three months, which works out at around 1.5 hours per week. To find out more about the eligibility criteria for the program, please visit the mentee FAQs page.

 

Why be a Mentor?

Mentors are leaders. They give back to their professional communities. They coach people to achieve their full potential, and work effectively with people of all different backgrounds and experiences in today’s diverse workplace.

Giving just 18 hours of your time over three months could help change someone’s life.

 

You should become a mentor if:

  • You have worked for at least two years in your field in Canada.

  • You’re thinking about your professional legacy.

  • You want to share your industry knowledge with others.

  • You want to develop professionally.

 

Being a mentor can help you:

  • Learn leadership skills.

  • Build your coaching skills.

  • Develop your cross cultural communication skills.

  • Add to your professional network.
