Career Mentoring

Careers, Employability & Skills provides many opportunities for your to be introduced to employers or experienced graduates who have succeeded in building the sort of career that‌‌ genuinely interests you.  Opportunities for mentoring are often linked to alumni and guest speaker opportunities such as Skype Nights, speed mentoring events and networking evenings advertised in Myfuture or offered as part of a career development programme or internship.  

Examples of Recent and Upcoming Events:

  • Human Rights Skype Night 4.45-7.15pm 8.2.17:  Guest speakers from United Nations, Irish Equal Opportunities Commission and Amnesty International
  • Employer Events: Careers, Employability & Skills advertises over 100 employer-led presentations in Myfuture each year.  These include information sessions,  mock interview opportunities and workshops.  The service invites representatives of a wide variety of graduate employers in to speak directly to Queen's students and provide them with insights into graduate work, workplace cultures, expectations and recruitment processes.  Where events are on campus, these conversations often take place with small groups of students and provide lots of opportunity for individual questions.  Larger off-campus events are also advertised and typically take place in the offices of the employer;  in a hotel or other venue in the Greater Belfast area.
  • Speed Mentoring Evenings, and alumni panel nights:  Generally open to any student, great for first-time mentees and are advertised in the Careers Events section of Myfuture. These are fast moving and enjoyable.  You will get the chance to talk with up to 12 Alumni and other graduate professionals who are employed or self-employed in a large organisation or a specialist SME.
