CESA's Student Mentor-ship Initiative

Apply now for the 2016-2017 academic year!

Are you a co-op student? Do you want to hear about how work culture is different from school? Or would you like to share your story about your first work term with a new co-op student? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you should consider CESA's Student Mentorship Program.

Looking for a Mentor?

As a new student in the co-op program, it can be intimidating navigating through the process of landing your first placement. CESA's Student Mentorship Initiative is a great way to get connected with a senior co-op student who has already gone through the process. The mentorship program is for the entire 2016-2017 academic year, so you will have plenty of time to ask your mentor questions regarding the program, whether it be regarding the job hunt or transitioning to the workplace. We will contact you after September 18th, to let you know who you have been matched with, according to your interests and preferences. Please note that you will need to be a student new to the co-op program to apply to be a mentee. 

The deadline to fill out an application form to become a mentee is Sunday, September 18, 2016.

Looking to Become a Mentor?

Senior co-ops, wouldn't you liked to have had an opportunity like this when you had first entered the program? By becoming a student mentor, you not only get the satisfaction of helping transition your fellow classmates into their first job, but you also receive a great opportunity to add to your resume! This program will help define your leadership and networking skills, and is an excellent way to share your experience within the program.  We will contact you after September 18th to let you know who you have been paired with, based on their interests and preferences. This initiative requires a commitment for the 2016-2017 academic year, to give the best possible experience for the new co-op students. Please note that you will need to go through a 30 minute info session put together by CESA and Co-op office before being fully accepted into the initiative. You will need to either currently be in your second placement, or already completed two placements to become a mentor. 

The deadline to fill out an application form to become a mentor is Sunday, September 18, 2016.
