The City East Mentor Program empowers professionally skilled migrants, refugees and asylum seekers to reach their employment potential and maximise their contribution to Australian society.
This project aims to address the ‘brain waste’ of far too many skilled and qualified people not working in their profession. The Program matches job-seekers with volunteer mentors who provide invaluable, individualised support including job-seeking strategies such as effective resume writing, interview skills, professional networking and insights into Australian work culture. The Mentor Program promotes social inclusion, creates employment pathways and eases the transition of professionally skilled migrants into life and work in Australia.
There are a number of ways in which interested volunteers can participate in the Mentor Program:
Volunteer mentors are matched and work individually with a job-seeker. Groups or individuals can also volunteer for one-off mock interview sessions.
Mentoring and/or mock interview sessions are arranged between the mentor and mentee at mutually convenient times.
Mode of contact will include Skype or Zoom, email and phone communication.
