InfIuence Young Careers with ECARE 
Success cannot be measured in wealth, fame or power, but by whether you have made a positive difference for others.
Richard Branson
Be the driving force for graduates | Share your experience

The Ecare Professional Mentorship Program was designed by an idea that everyone needs a hand at times. We all know that the journey to success is never a straight forward one. Ecare Careers has developed an exclusive program designed to connect Industry Professionals with locally qualified international students. Our group of Professional Mentors are involved helping graduates in preparing for their careers through one on one coaching, group coaching and at our networking events.

Our Founder Eric Xu, has been a driving force in developing careers for international students for a number of years. In today’s market, many international students have the academic qualifications, however one of the major factors that affects the job market is that these students don’t have access to professional and experienced mentors within their industry to guide them and develop their skills.

If you consider yourself an expert in your industry and would like to make a real impact in someone’s career ,our Mentorship Program will give you the opportunity to share your experience, influence a new generation of professionals, additional income and many more benefits.
