Ten Thousand Coffees – Alumni Mentorship Program

Bishop’s University has partnered with Ten Thousand Coffees, a professional development platform, to connect you with alumni and build your network.

Networking can be awkward and intimidating, but it’s essential for your personal and professional success. This is where Ten Thousand Coffees comes in! When you become a member of Bishop’s Career Café, Ten Thousand Coffees will pair you with alumni of interest and guide you through the conversation to help you feel better prepared for the future of work and develop your professional network.

Over 350 alumni have already joined this platform and are eager to meet with you to share their experiences and answer your questions.

How does it work?

  1. You will be automatically matched with an alumnus each month who has questions related to your career goals and areas of interest.
  2. Grab a coffee with them in-person, chat on the phone, or meet virtually.
  3. Use your Bishop’s Career Café participation to add to your CV and get a LinkedIn profile certification to add to your professional development experience.

What will you get from the program?

  • Gain a better understanding of future career opportunities.
  • Develop confidence and communication skills with guided practice.
  • A supportive network of BU alumni.

Bishop’s Career Café is available in French or English!
