The T.A.S.T.E. program pairs mentors with York students over an informal meeting during which the alumna/us shares information about their job, industry and organization. Help students to explore potential careers as they ask questions and learn more about a role, organization, or field of interest.
Career Conversations: Ongoing
Take part in one of York’s Career Conversation panels and share details of your personal career path with students. Career Conversations enables students to gain insight into a variety of careers within a specific field. Alumni and other professionals share:
- The realities of the sectors they work in
- Strategies for entering the sector
- Opportunities within their field

If you’re an alum achieving success in your field and would like to be part of our events to share some of your advice and insights with our students, please contact Ellie Coult at email@example.com to discuss opportunities.
