GradLink is a tripartite programme organised by Trinity Global Officers, the Trinity Development & Alumni Office, and the Careers Advisory Service, in collaboration with ten partner Schools.Schools across campus have signed up GradLink, with each of the Schools running a separate programme for their students. You can sign up to participate as a mentor for the School from which you graduated.
GradLink aims to develop current students’ knowledge of the labour market and career paths through nurturing career-learning relationships with alumni mentors working in a range of career areas.
Volunteering as a mentor involves meeting with a small group of students (up to 3 per mentor) on approximately three occasions during the academic year. The focus of these meetings is generally professional development and other career-related topics. The time commitment of the programme to mentors is approximately 10 hours, inclusive of the Launch Event.
As part of the launch event, we ask each graduate to speak for one to two minutes on their career to date. The overview could include a short synopsis of your profile, topics that you can best help students with in a mentoring capacity and any mentoring benefits you have experienced in your life. Following this, we will host a reception for the mentors, students and academic staff from the School.
