The award winning Career Mentor Link has been running since 2003 and each year the numbers of students registering for the program grows. This program matches UWA students from any discipline with an industry mentor, giving students students (mentees) the opportunity to seek advice about their career, and professionals (mentors) to share their skills and insights.
With more than 700 students already registered for 2016, mentors are urgently needed.
The program runs from April to October each year and the time commitment is flexible and not onerous – we simply ask that you meet up with your mentee once per month during the 6 months of the program. The 2016 program will be officially launched with a breakfast at Crown Perth 7 April.
There are many benefits to becoming a mentor, in addition to assisting and networking with high-calibre students, you will be able to work on your own skills in leadership, communication and coaching. The focus is on helping a student develop the skills they need to manage their career.
If you or your colleagues, friends or family would like to be involved, please complete the Mentor registration form online.
