Online networking and mentorship

What if every student and alumni from NorQuest College could make new connections where they could learn, share, and grow?

Introducing NorQuest Networking Cafe: matching students with alumni, and campus and community members for a career-inspiring coffee.

Having a diverse network means a world of difference. In fact, 85% of all jobs are filled through networking, yet many people feel they lack the skills or resources to develop professional relationships.

Ten Thousand Coffees is an exclusive networking platform that connects you to your NorQuest community and alumni for meaningful career conversations, based on specific career interests and goals. You can schedule and set up a coffee chat to take place in person or online.

How does it work?
