Pairing grad students with business mentors

The University of Calgary has a unique program that pairs grad students with mentors working in industry.


Welcome to the University Affairs podcast.

In this episode, web editor Tara Fraser explores a unique initiative at the University of Calgary.

Many grad students are quickly realizing that they may not end up with a job in academe. But they have no idea where to start looking for work in industry.

Luckily the U of C graduate students’ association has a specialized mentorship program that pairs PhD and masters students with mentors who are already working in industry.

Listen as Tara interviews one of the mentors about the program, as well as two of the grad students he gave advice to. (Running time: 9:20 mins).
