What’s Career Goal?
What’s the Need?
Career Goal is a career coaching organization providing guidance to new job seekers on resume, LinkedIn, Coffee chats etc.
Career Goal provides a platform to industry professionals to give back to the community.
Career Goal matches the mentees with the right mentor for expert guidance
Career Goal provides free speed mentoring coaching to job seekers and new immigrants
It is challenging for the new job seekers to understand the market pulse and be prepared for it
There is a lack of organized and structured mentoring of new Canadians to help navigate the nuances of various industries
Canadian companies stress more on Canadian experience (soft skills) and team player skills than just on the technical knowledge
Talented individuals do not get proper advice on how to present themselves on their resumes and cover letters or how to navigate through the networking events and coffee chats
What is the role of a Mentor?
What is in it for the Mentor?
Meet the selected Mentee for 30 Mins (Minimum) over coffee/lunch/beer
Share your experience of finding your first job and the mistakes that you could have avoided
Provide your views on interview preparation, Networking and Coffee meetings
Be a fresh pair of eyes for resumes, industries, career opportunities and alignment
Use personal experiences to build trust, and help navigate through the “blind spots”

Frequently Asked Questions
In addition to giving back to the community, what else can a mentor hope to get from this experience? Access to mentor/mentee network, contribute to the strategy, content and offerings of Career Goal (CG).
What is the time commitment required of me (per week/month) once I sign up as a mentor ? The only commitment required is for the coffee meetings with the matched mentee for 30 mins/mentee. However, we would request you to join on a volunteer (optional) basis the free speed mentoring events
Will I receive some orientation that will help me deliver a good mentorship experience? Every mentor will be on-boarded by an existing mentor or CG core team members. Mentors will also be provided some guidelines and supporting documents to review the resumes and conduct the coffee chats
What are the criteria based on which the mentees will be assigned to me? Based on Mentee’s background and interest, CG team would find the mentor with the right experience
Am I required to coach the mentees or help after the coffee meeting? You are only committing for the coffee meeting. Any further coaching is completely your personal choice.
How should mentors handle requests such as preparation for interviews at a specific company? We are not obliged to provide any company specific guidance, however, feel free to share your perspective
How is the mentor-mentee interaction facilitated – is there a pre-decided location and time enforced? CG will make the match making and leave the Mentor and Mentee to co-ordinate the meeting directly
Am I going to meet other peer mentors, and can I leverage that network? Yes. One of the core objectives of this initiative is to create a close-knit professional network of Mentors
