Dear Members

The Association of Romanian Engineers in Canada is proud to announce that is now able to offer the Mentoring Program on-going. Please call us to start anytime you feel ready. The main objective of this program is to connect internationally trained Romanian-Canadian newcomers with successful Romanian-Canadian engineers for the purposes of helping to build useful networks, get tips and advice to guide mentees towards achieving their career goals in Canada.

Objectives of the program

  • To help new skilled newcomers by matching them with a mentor with similar background
  • To assist them with developing their professional networks and with making educated career decisions
  • To increase understanding of Canadian workplace culture and the reality of transferring professional designations
  • To strengthen the knowledge of community resources and linkages to settlement services, skill development, job search resources, language and literacy programming among other services


How Mentoring Works

Mentoring connects recent skilled immigrants to established Canadian professionals in the same or related occupations or industries. Immigrants entering a mentoring program possess the education, experience and language skills needed to excel in the workforce. Mentoring opens networks, builds relationships and increases social capital, leading to employment.

The mentoring model adds value to existing programs in that it focuses on employer engagement as a key component of the match.

Group mentoring is a unique form of support, where a group of skilled immigrants looking for work (mentees) connect with a professional working in their field (mentor). In a recent webinar, we explained how an occupation-specific group mentoring model works, how it has benefited both mentees and mentors, and pointed to several resources to assist in developing your own group mentoring program.
