Bishop’s Career Café

Welcome to Bishop’s Career Café – Online networking and mentorship

It’s time to jump into your purple network

It’s no secret that networking matters. 85% of jobs are filled through networking, and it’s often part of the job itself.

School is where your network begins, and we know that it can be tricky to start on your own and to keep at it. That’s why we’ve partnered with Ten Thousand Coffees to connect aspiring professionals.

All you need to do is find time in each other’s schedules to meet in-person, chat on the phone, or online with videoconferencing software.
