APEGA Mentoring Café

Get ready to enhance your journey through engineering and geoscience. The APEGA Mentoring Café provides guidance and advice from expert professionals to members-in-training (M.I.T.s) enrolled in the Work Readiness Program and students enrolled in an engineering or geoscience program. This mentoring program offers personalized, 30-minute virtual meetings with industry professionals who are ready to offer guidance and advice on a variety of topics.

You can choose from over 80 passionate volunteers, each with expert knowledge and experience with the engineering and geoscience professions. This is a completely free service designed to help you access professional guidance when you need it. 

For students and M.I.T.s, you can ask for advice on:

  • technical competence
  • digital literacy
  • inclusive leadership
  • project and financial management
  • social, economic, environmental, and governance
  • professional accountability
  • professional success and career topics

For M.I.T.s working on their professional application, you can request:

  • mentoring for your professional application
  • guidance for navigating the application process
  • assistance ensuring all necessary information is included and presented effectively

Please be advised that mentoring for professional applications may require a longer commitment between mentors and mentees (sometimes up to three months). Working with a mentor on your application can provide valuable guidance and support, but does not guarantee acceptance by APEGA or any other regulatory body with whom the final decision resides.
