The Metropolitan College CareerGuide Online Mentorship Program supports the professional development of our UPS Metropolitan College students attending the University of Louisville and Jefferson Community and Technical College who are preparing to enter the workforce. This unique and online mentorship program is meant to be a one-time exchange between the students and mentors so there is no lengthy time commitment involved.

Students are connected with professionals who will serve as their "CareerGuides" and provide valuable “one-time” feedback through an email-based platform utilizing a guided mentorship engagement form on career documents, such as the resume, online career portfolio, and LinkedIn profile.

One-time mentorship engagements provide a lot of flexibility and allow CareerGuides to share their knowledge and expertise in an impactful way and students benefit from receiving timely feedback on their career documents from experienced industry professionals which contributes to growth and development.

Students and CareerGuides can maintain contact beyond the one-time mentorship engagement, if mutually agreed, but this is not requirement or expectation of the program.
