In March, 2013, Huron held its first career mentoring event in Toronto, attracting approximately 100 people and providing young alumni and students with opportunities to benefit from career advice of alumni who have enjoyed success in a variety of professions. Receptions have been held since, with the most recent held on March 4, 2017 with plans in place to hold another mentoring event in the 2017/18 academic year.
In addition, Huron’s mentoring program, accessible online, offers the names of distinguished alumni representing a broad variety of professional backgrounds in cities across Canada for fellow alumni and senior students to access. It’s an opportunity for alumni to share their experience and offer career and professional advice to fellow members of the Huron community as they pursue their careers.
Interested alumni contact the University Advancement office at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the username and password for the protected site, which provides the names, emails and areas of professional interest for alumni who have agreed to be contacted. Huron welcomes alumni who wish to be a mentor contact as well as those seeking career advice from a mentor.
