Mentor

The ASET mentoring program allows for new and aspiring technologists/technicians to connect with experienced and credible professionals, allowing them to share knowledge and experiences that support personal and professional growth and development. ASET mentors may assist high school and post-secondary students to learn more about career paths; existing ASET members looking to navigate career changes or build career development strategies; and/or internationally trained professionals to better understand the Canadian workplace culture. Serving as a mentor in the mentoring program is an opportunity to form a mutually beneficial relationship with mentees who seek experience-based knowledge, guidance and career advice.

We are always seeking volunteers to join the ASET Mentoring Program in every discipline of practice. Currently, we are especially seeking mentors with experience in the mechanical discipline.
