What is Career Mentoring?

The OCC's Career Mentoring program enhances the student experience by linking you to one-on-one with a career mentor.

Students are paired with someone invested in their success — a person ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges and recognize opportunities. Gain career advice and valuable insights, while mentors will build their networks and develop skills to become better professionals and leaders.
