MentorAbility: Jumpstart your career!

Posted on Wednesday, March 31st, 2021

MentorAbility provides a unique mentoring experience in which job seekers who self-identify as having a disability are matched with individual mentors (employers or business leaders) – to explore different career pathways and opportunities in their desired field of interest. The experience can last from 1 hour to 1 day long.

Your MentorAbility Experience could involve any of the following:

  • You could have a tour of a workplace.
  • You may meet new people.
  • You could find out more information about a possible career path.
  • You could get advice from people with experience in different types of work.
  • You could have someone from Human Resources give you feedback on your resume.
  • You might do some job-shadowing or observing. So you can see what is involved in a job you are interested in.
  • You could learn more about a certain type of business.
  • You could do a practice interview.
  • You can expand your professional network.
  • You can explore the next steps on your career path!
