What is it?

The Build ON Mentorship Program connects Build ON clients with a volunteer Career Mentor working in the same or a related field within Ontario. This service is offered in partnership with Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization (OCISO).

The mentor supports the client to:

  • Develop an employment action plan
  • Learn about the Canadian working culture within their profession
  • Fine tune resume, cover letter and interview skills
  • Develop a professional network within their field

How it works?

Mentors and mentees meet online. Mentors build upon the knowledge the Mentee has acquired, offering guidance and support with respect to:

  • Career objectives
  • Canadian workplace language, culture and etiquette
  • Employment research strategies
  • Employer engagement strategies
  • Professional Network Development
  • Employment application preparation
  • Resume, cover letter and interview preparation
  • Overall guidance and encouragement
