WCM UniConnect Mentorship Program

Explore career options, prepare for recruiting, build your network and kickstart your successful career in the capital markets!

The UniConnect Mentorship Program pairs female university students of business or STEM programs (undergraduate and graduate level) with a professional mentor currently working in the capital markets for a 6-month period.

Why be a mentee?

  • Get insightful advice and guidance from someone who has been in your shoes
  • Develop a close relationship with your mentor and network with other Capital Markets professionals
  • Learn about the Capital Markets industry from an insider
  • Benefit from your mentor's experience and be inspired by their successes

The program is open to students across Canada. Due to the geographically concentrated nature of the industry, geographic proximity between mentors and mentees may not always be feasible, but will be prioritized wherever possible.

About the Program

The mentorship relationships begin on August 1st, 2017 and run until February 2018, with the mentors and mentees meeting on a monthly basis, either in person or over the phone. Discussion topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Introduction to the Capital Markets
  • Day in the Life of an Analyst/Associate
  • Skills for Success
  • Networking- Building and Maintaining a Network and the Etiquette of Networking
  • Managing the Recruiting Process
