Brenda Rios Brombacher, Director of HCU’s McNair Center for Entrepreneurship talks with Glen Austin, Director of Education Policy at Greater Houston Partnership (GHP) about PartnerUp Houston, a first-of-its-kind regional mentorship opportunity sponsored through a collaborative venture between GHP and Mentor Collective. The mentoring initiative matches students with industry professionals from one of GHP’s mentor companies in their field of interest. Over the course of 12 weeks, participating students meet with professional mentors to explore career pathways, recognize career opportunities and develop job interviewing and networking skills. The aim of the initiative, per Austin, is to help students explore career paths, determine the roles and industries that best fit their career interests, enhance job interview and networking skills and provide insights on navigating the work world. The initiative also enables mentor companies to build a network of young professionals, identify great talent for their companies and give back to the community.
