Build impactful relationships while gaining essential leadership and job-relevant skills
What is PartnerUp Houston?
PartnerUp Houston originated out of an expressed desire by students to have a safe place to connect with industry professionals to help guide them in achieving career aspirations.
The PartnerUp Houston mentorship program will positively impact the Greater Houston-region by equitably linking college students looking to enter the workforce one-on-one with local industry professionals. PartnerUp Houston aims to help college students achieve career outcomes including securing internships and full-time opportunities. Students will be paired with someone invested in their success — a mentor who is ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges, and recognize opportunities.
Students will learn how to approach challenges and gain career advice, while building a network of professionals, which will open doors for career advancement. At the same time, mentors will build their network of young professionals, give back to their community, and identify great talent for their companies.

"I would love to have someone who I can have open communication with that goes beyond career advice; someone who I trust to guide me in life."
"It would be helpful to have a better understanding of career opportunities that exist for my major. It is hard to know what opportunities exist and currently I have to do a lot of outside research to gain insight."
"I'm really excited to have someone there for me. It's nice knowing that I'm not completely alone and hopefully can be someone I can reach out to if I'm having a hard time in school or other activities."
"I'm volunteering to mentor because I've been fortunate enough to have mentors who guided me throughout my academic and professional careers & I feel like I am finally able to give back."
"I would like to give back and help current students achieve their goals, sometimes all it takes is a simple conversation."
"I have personally benefited from the help of some great mentors both in my personal life and academic/career life. At my first real job after college, I was assigned a mentor on my first day that has been nothing but supportive and helpful to me as I embarked on a new journey."
"Mentorship has been a very valuable asset to my life and career so far. I believe it is my duty to also give back like the mentors who have been part of my success so far."
