How to be a Featured Mentor

Find out how you can give back and be a featured mentor on StCatsConnect and share career advice, expertise and knowledge with our students, alumni and parents

How to sign up to be a featured mentor

To start please login to and go to the University & Careers page where you can update the ways you would like to help (bottom of the page).

Once you have selected you will see a slightly different version (below) when you log-in and you can click here to edit your mentor settings/status at any time.

If you click edit mentor status it will take you to the settings tab of your profile (example  below) where there are some extra controls for mentors that allow you to:

  • Change 'how' you are willing to help (e.g. restrict your help to career advice only, or job interview prep only)
  • Limit how many people you're willing to hear from at any one time (counts 'active' interactions only, any closed interactions will not contribute to the limit)
  • Option to temporarily hide yourself from the mentoring programme for 30 days because you're busy or to permanently opt out of the programme and be hidden from the search results completely.

How does it work?

Online members of StCatsConnect are able to search for and find people to ask for careers support as mentees. When they conduct a search the results will show those who are featured mentors at the top of the list, and all other online profiles that match the criteria underneath this. The results will not show people who have opted out (temporarily or permanently), mentors who have restricted their number of interactions and who have reached their limit, or people who do not meet the search criteria.

If you match the search of an online member looking for help you will receive a personal message from them with a series of options of how to respond (example below).

By clicking on one of the links you will be able to communicate your decision back to the Development Office. If you reply to say you can’t help either temporarily or permanently this will automatically change your settings in your StCatsConnect website profile.

If you have any questions about online mentoring please contact the

Thank you for joining our e-Mentoring programme as a mentor, giving back to our community is very important!
