Connecting Trent students, recent grads, and experienced alumni for career conversations.

Today eighty-five percent of jobs are filled through networking.To help students and alumni build their networks, Trent University is offering TrentUConnect, an online professional networking community hosted on the Ten Thousand Coffees™ virtual networking platform.


Are you an experienced alumni who would like to help students and recent graduates with their career aspirations?

By joining TrentUConnect, experienced alumni can make themselves available for meaningful, one-on-one career conversations with students and recent grads, help them build their network, and offer other career support. You will be introduced to others who are keen to hear from you!

Are you a recent graduate setting out on a new employment adventure? 

Establishing a broad and meaningful network, you’ll be able to find job opportunities before they’re posted on job boards, which means that your chances of getting hired are much better.
