Pair up with a MSD alumni to learn about their experiences, develop professional skills and better understand where you could take your career.
Applications will be open from 9 April 2018.
By being part of this program you will get the chance to ask questions and learn skills from an industry professional. If you have not worked before, you could use this opportunity to have professional interactions, learn about workplaces and start to understand the professional landscape ahead of you. If you have some work experience in a café, shop or business you could use this experience to broaden your knowledge about a career path or build on your professional skills.
This program will allow you to build:
- Communication, networking and professional skills
- Confidence in professional interactions
- Knowledge of your field of interest or degree studied by asking questions about your career direction and different opportunities available to you
- Professional networks through your mentor
Note: This mentorship is to facilitate a professional relationship and is not designed to find you direct employment.
