The Industry Mentoring Program is:
- Open to all study disciplines and industries
- Allows students to connect with one or several professionals working in industry throughout the year.
- Participants can opt-in and out as the year progresses.
- 10 different mentoring program plans on offer.
Choosing your mentoring program plan:
The 2020 Industry Mentoring Program offers 10 mentoring program plans for participants to choose between. Each plan offers a list of tasks, activities and talking points on different topics (depending on the plan you choose). You are able to use the plan to guide your mentoring relationship. If you're looking for a more self-lead program with little guidance provided, option 1 will best suit you.
You will select your preferred mentoring program plan/s when registering for the mentoring program (you can change your selections at any time). Your choice of program will be used as a guide when finding a mentoring match and when assigning the appropriate mentoring plan to your connection.
