Wanted! Career Mentors

The Careers Service in partnership with Development & Alumni are launching an innovative eMentoring platform for students and graduates and we'd like your help.

Career Mentors

We are currently recruiting a diverse team of alumni as eMentors and would love to hear from interested alumni.

Whether you are a lawyer, scientist, teacher, astronaut, accountant, graphic designer, engineer or IT consultant or whether you live in Edinburgh, London, New York or Shanghai, we need your skills, knowledge and experience.

The eMentoring platform will give students and graduates access to a rich knowledge resource, valuable insight into employment sectors and help in career planning.

We already have a number of wonderful eMentors signed up who are looking forward to helping ensure that Edinburgh graduates continue to stand out from the crowd - why not join them?
