Connecting with industry professionals

Connecting with industry professionals

Karthikeya knows how competitive the job market is, which is why he is using RMIT's Career Mentoring program to connect with industry.

RMIT’s Career Mentoring program gives RMIT students and recent alumni access to unique 1-to-1 mentoring with industry professionals.

Now in its 10th year, the program allows mentees to receive instant access to a powerful and diverse network of industry leaders – both locally and globally.

Bachelor of Analytics student, Karthikeya Mopur, joined the program last year hoping to increase his connections and immerse himself in industry, saying that it has linked him up with the best possible people.

“It was clear that I had to increase my connections, socialise with industry professionals and gain as much local exposure as possible,” he said.

“The mentors on this program have been extremely supportive and perfectly guided me in progressing academically and professionally.”

With RMIT’s strong links to industry, relationships made in this program help prepare mentees for a successful future beyond RMIT.

Karthikeya said that working with industry mentors has made him more confident in what he wants to achieve in the future.

“Each time I’d meet a mentor they’d have all the answers to my questions, making me more confident and aware of the next steps,” he said.

“Most importantly, I have been able to build my personal brand and prove myself as a suitable candidate for any future openings."
