Career Mentor Program

Career Mentor Program 2019

The University of Tasmania’s new Career Mentor Program will be launching in early February 2019. The program matches students with alumni based on shared interests, degree background or industry. It’s a valuable way for students to gain useful career advice, through building an informal and supportive relationship with an experienced UTAS graduate.

The Career Mentor Program is for students from any discipline who have completed at least 12 months of study at UTAS or the Australian Maritime College. Applications from distance students are especially welcome.
