OC Connects

Sign up

Sign up and fill out your profile with your personal interests and what you'd like to get out of your conversations. The more detailed your profile is, the better your matches will be.

Match

Every four weeks you'll receive a new introduction to a student or alumni. Follow the steps in the introduction email to get the conversation started and to schedule a meet up.

Meet

Simply suggest a time and a place to chat with your match either in person, on the phone, or in a Google Hangouts. Meet up and share tips on advancing their career and expanding their networks.

Grow your network, mentor the future

Remember what it felt like to be a student at Okanagan College? Imagine if you'd had a network of professionals who could share the answers you needed when you were graduating and going off into the real world.

Just like you, students and recent graduates today are full of potential but unsure of where to start. 

Today, we're making that network a reality. Okanagan College and the Okanagan College Alumni Association have partnered with Ten Thousand Coffees and RBC Future Launch, a professional development platform, to create OC Connect, an online mentoring and networking platform. We need people just like you to lead it!

Using an algorithm based on your profile, Ten Thousand Coffees will provide members with a new match each month. Not available to meet up that month? Pause  your introductions.

Members can also browse all searchable members by name, location, job title and can reach out to them to create a connection.

Use your Okanagan College-affiliated mentorship to add to your CV and get a LinkedIn profile certification to add to your volunteer experience.

Tap into experts in your field and help mentor the future of your industry.
