Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) alumni and friends from a range of sectors and organisations offer their time, advice and support to current CIT students embarking on similar career paths as themselves through the CIT Joint Mentorship Programme.

The impact that the programme has had on the overall student experience is very positive with graduates now indicating that they are sourcing employment through the programme (CIT First Destinations Survey 2016).

CIT is further developing the programme this year by seeking endorsement from professional bodies and local and national organisations.  Cork Chamber has supported the programme as it provides an excellent means of supporting students in Cork to gain insight and advice on the practicalities and realities of the workplace.  From the point of view of the local business community, the better prepared our graduates are for the workplace, the more valuable they are as future potential employees”. Conor Healy, CEO, Cork Chamber.

The Programme, which is jointly coordinated by the CIT Careers Service and CIT Alumni Office, aims to match current students with professionals (the majority of whom are CIT graduates), from a wide range of sectors to exchange business experience, knowledge, expertise and career advice.
