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 with a UNSW graduate, that facilitates greater self-awareness of skills, knowledge, experiences and attributes.

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. 

Why become a mentor?

  • Inspire a student who is eager to learn more from your career trajectory and expertise.

  • Contribute to the UNSW community in a meaningful way.
  • Receive certification in the form of a UNSW-certified digital badge
