Human Resources Career Mentor -- (VIRTUAL during COVID-19. Virtual or face-to-face after COVID-19)


COVID-19 notes:

  • We have relaxed criteria for posting volunteer opportunities due to the urgent need for COVID-19 Response. Volunteers are responsible for confirming the legitimacy of the group or organization(s) they are working with. Never hand over money or confidential information to groups looking for volunteers.
  • Please confirm that the organization you want to volunteer with can ensure your safety.

DESCRIPTION

PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID-19 emergency (ie. physical 'social distancing), Mentors will be 'virtual' (online/telephone) in their meetings with mentees. After COVID-19 mentors and mentees may meet virtually or face to face.

Mentors are paired with an immigrant professional from their profession. They assist a mentee in:
- understanding the Canadian context of their profession and workplace culture
- gathering information on their occupation and industry
- developing professional networks and job search strategies
Mentors are NOT expected to find a job for their mentee.

PLEASE APPLY by clicking the yellow box 'Apply Now!' (above/below) to gain immediate access to the mentoring program APPLICATION PROCESS. If you do not have a volunteering 'profile' with Volunteer MBC, to use this feature, create your 'profile' online. SCREENING of applicants will be 'VIRTUAL' during the COVID-19 Emergency.
