Mentoring and Job Shadowing: Exceptional Opportunities for Students

April 2018

The Agricultural & Environmental Sciences Undergraduate Society

The Mentor Program is designed to connect Macdonald students with Macdonald alumni, allowing them the opportunity to gain valuable experience and advice for career development. Share your career expertise or industry insights with students, new graduates and fellow alumni looking for advice on their next career move.

Over the years, in collaboration with CaPS (Career Planning Service), we have welcomed back alumni to round table discussions with students. These unique events provide face-to-face opportunities for our students to speak with young and mid-career alumni about their job experiences after graduation. Can’t attend an event but still want to participate, you can connect through Skype and still be there!

The Food Science Association

We are always looking for alumni to share their stories and participate in mentoring events. It’s easy to get started. Just fill in the form below and you are on your way to sharing your knowledge with others.

The Dietetics and Human Nutrition Undergraduate Society

Connect through Job Shadowing

A job-shadowing experience enables a student to explore a potential career and provide them with realistic career information that may guide their class selection, future internships, and career choice. To expand the experiential learning resources available to students on the Macdonald Campus, University Advancement and the Career Planning Service collaborated to establish a permanent job shadowing program.

. The job-shadowing match offers students a chance to network with McGill alumni and other professionals in a low-stress environment. Students may also have the opportunity to expand their professional experience and augment their curriculum vitaes by meeting with human resource staff or participating in a mock interview.

Job-shadowing placements are usually held during Spring Break, and can be as short as a half a day or as long as several days. If you have the time, we have the student. Just fill in the online form to get started.
