Settling in a new country can require people to look at their careers in new ways. Mentoring provides an opportunity to learn about how one’s occupation is practised here, to adjust career goals or set new ones if necessary, and make future plans.

Mentees will have already received some general job search training and support prior to participating in the mentoring program. They should already have an idea of which career direction they would like to pursue; however, during the course of the mentoring relationship, mentees may need assistance with
    •    setting career goals commensurate with their skills and experience.
    •    developing a strategy  to achieve career goals.
    •    gaining relevant professional skills and knowledge.
