Mentor Immigrant Talent
July 5, 2016
We presently have 50 talented newcomer professionals seeking a mentor in their fields and commensurate employment. Industries represented include engineering, finance, tech, life sciences, research and sales.
The LMIEC Mentorship for Immigrant Employment Program brings together internationally trained individuals and international student graduates with local mentors in their field to gain a better understanding of the regional job market; establish valuable networking contacts; and learn more about sector-specific language and professional practice in Canada.
This volunteer commitment of no more than a couple hours a month over a 4-6 month period is a valuable opportunity to increase intercultural awareness, learn about your field from an international perspective and support a newcomer’s efforts to become professionally established in our region. The LMIEC also offers small group sessions for mentees & mentors throughout the year, and facilitates peer-mentoring opportunities.
