Winter 2023 - Industry Mentorship Program
Grow your personal and professional skills as a mentor at SAIT.
This 12-week program starts on Feb. 6, 2023 and runs until April 14, 2023, and matches industry mentors with a SAIT student who is studying your industry.
The program will give you the opportunity to enhance your leadership and coaching skills by providing professional guidance and feedback to your student mentee. Not only are you helping a student, but you’re furthering your own personal growth and learning by serving as a role model during the mentoring relationship.
Over the 12 weeks, the suggested time commitment will be around 1 hour per week – this includes training, meetings with your mentee and feedback surveys.
We are currently looking for industry mentors for the following School of Business programs: Accounting, Administration Information Management, Financial Services, Human Resource Management, Journalism, Legal Assistant, Library Information Technology, Management, Marketing, Office Professional, Supply Chain Management.
The deadline to apply is Tuesday, January 31, 2023.
The opportunity to mentor someone really helps you develop your teaching and coaching abilities, which is always a valuable skill to have, particularly as you grow in your career and need to employ similar skills with new hires and early-career professionals.
