Jesus Connect, our Careers and Mentoring platform
All Jesus College students are invited to join Jesus Connect, our online Careers and Mentoring platform. You can request your invitation link by emailing us.
On Jesus Connect, you can connect with other students and our diverse alumni community – find out more on our case studies page. You can also access posts providing advice for specific sectors, groups focusing on particular career interests, invitation to events, application links to internships, and work experience opportunities.
You can use Jesus Connect to connect with mentors from across the alumni community.
Why take part?
As a mentee, you will benefit from a space in which you can really think about your career and personal goals, and create an action plan for achieving realistic goals in manageable steps that you can work towards between meetings.
- You will be encouraged and challenged to consider issues and come up with your own options for how to move forward in ways that you might not otherwise have time or space to focus upon.
- Mentorship will provide you with the opportunity to consider and review the options for your future, and to focus on your career development.
- Being mentored is a great way to expand your professional network, creating valuable contacts with alumni within the College's community.
Mentor matching service
We offer a mentor matching service for all Jesus Students. Whilst we absolutely encourage you to make your own connections using Jesus Connect, if you would like us to suggest some possible mentors for you, and/or to approach potential mentors on your behalf, please fill in the webform here outlining what you are looking for in a mentor and what you are hoping to get out of mentoring and we can do the rest.
