Mentoring and career coaching:

In addition to the coaching received from the hiring manager, students also have the chance to participate in the Student Mentorship Program and receive further support from experienced city employees. This program provides mentees with opportunities to discuss strategies for setting and attaining career goals and manage work and life decisions. 

Through conversation and the building of a relationship with their mentor, students can gain greater knowledge of career success factors and first-hand insights into working for Municipal Government.
