Ask Alumni Program Information for Students


Getting started

It can be daunting to think past your final year of study and what you might be doing next. What does a career in a particular field actually look like in reality? Should you undertake further study? Have you chosen the right career path?

Ask Alumni is a new mentoring program providing you with the opportunity to connect with volunteer alumni mentors for one-off career conversations. You can connect anywhere, anytime with multiple professionals from around the world to expand your knowledge of career options and plan for life after study.

The program launched in August 2018 and we welcome your feedback while we continue to build the Ask Alumni community.

Please note that only currently enrolled University of Melbourne students can sign up as mentees to this program.
