UNSW Career Ready Mentoring Program

The Career Ready Mentoring Program connects UNSW students in their penultimate and final year of study with established industry professionals, providing students with a significant opportunity to focus on career development during the transition from study to work.


Through industry exposure, professional guidance and self-directed participation, each student will develop career-ready skills, providing a tangible link between study, employment and industry.

The program offers the flexibility of conducting meetings face to face, by video (such as Skype or Zoom) or by phone.
