How Career Mentoring helps
Our students lack professional contacts working in their field of interest. Career mentoring is a specialised role where a student is matched with a Career Mentor already working in their field. The Career Mentor can share firsthand knowledge about the industry and how to gain work experience and, in some cases, can even connect students with a wider network of professional contacts.
