The Industry Mentoring Program is an opportunity for La Trobe University students to connect with an Industry Professional who may also be a La Trobe graduate (alumni) in a 12 week guided but flexible mentoring relationship. Students are matched with mentors based on key interests, education and career aspiration alignment.

The mentoring relationship is flexible and unique to the agreement formed between mentor and mentee. La Trobe University staff are available to help guide relationships when required.

The Industry Mentoring program contributes towards the Career Ready Advantage Award for La Trobe University students.

La Trobe Excellence Academy Graduate Mentoring Program

The La Trobe Excellence Academy Alumni Chapter welcome current students of the La Trobe Excellence Academy to be mentored by alumni who have taken part in the Excellence Academy while studying.

Over three online sessions, mentors will share how they prepared for life after graduation, their key learnings on entering the job market and their experiences since graduating.

Students can expect to gain valuable insights from their mentor; from setting clear career goals, job searching and interviewing advice, networking opportunities, and more!

Students will be matched with alumni based on discipline areas, shared experiences, or interests.
