In addition to providing individualized employment and career support, Vermont Works for Women has launched a new career mentorship program. Through this program, Vermont women or gender nonconforming individuals can request to meet virtually with one of our volunteer career mentors to get help with finding a new job or learning about a new career.
Whether you’re looking for your first job, contemplating a career change, or simply want some employment advice, a career mentor can help. Along with providing guidance during the job search and application process, our career mentors come from a diverse set of career backgrounds. Therefore, if you want to learn more about a specific job or career field, it is likely that someone in our mentor network has relevant experience working in that particular field.
For example, our career mentors have professional experience in:
- Business Administration
- Academic Research
- Clean Energy
- Human Resources
- Higher Education
- Medicine and Dentistry
- And much more!
Meeting with a mentor is a great way to get firsthand information about what a particular job is like, or how to get started in a specific career. You may even find out about career paths you didn’t know existed.
To request to meet with a career mentor, fill out the form below. Once VWW has a sense of what type of advice you’re looking for, we’ll match you with a career mentor who can best meet your needs.
