Frequently Asked Questions

What is the format of SBN Mentorship?

SBN’s mentorship program facilitates interactions between students and representatives from industry, government and academia. 

Ways to mentor:

1. One-on-one interactions facilitated through round-table mentorship.

Students are seated with mentors in a field related to their interests.  Students are encouraged to ask questions about their interests and career goals in the hopes that the mentors seated at the same table as them can provide advice.  If the students seated at the table are unable to start a conversation, we ask mentors to chat with students about their career goals, extra-curricular activities and where they see themselves in 10 years. 

2. Networking Receptions

Mentors and Students are brought together in a networking reception.

3. Career Connect

The 2010-2011 SBN season will mark our third year organizing our Career Connect, where students are brought into a local life sciences company for a half day session to observe the inner workings of a biotech company and make connections with key individuals.  If your company would be interested in hosting a Career Connect event, please contact Natalia Subrt at natalia@thesbn.ca
